Degrees and Certifications:

Dr. Rob Lyda

This is my 20th year in public education.  I attended Troy State University (BME) and Auburn University (MEd & PhD).  I have completed certification studies in World Music Drumming, Kodály, and am an Orff-Schulwerk certified teacher (Levels 1-3 & Master Class).  I serve as the Chair of  The National Association for Music Education's  Council for General Music Education and as President-Elect of the Alabama Music Educators Association.  My favorite things are my family, Lego, Star Wars, Disney and of course our CWES Explorers!  One of my favorite quotes is from Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” 

I love to have fun and love being at Cary Woods!
