About our new Band Director

Hello Simi Valley High School,
My name is Scott Drechsel (Drexel), and I am extremely excited about joining the Simi Valley High School (SVHS) Pioneer Team. I look forward to my role as the Instrumental Music Director for SVHS in the Simi Valley Unified School District for the 2022-2023 school year. In collaboration with the school community, I know we will have an amazing upcoming school year.
I was born and raised in Agoura Hills and have been a musician for thirty years now. Although I am a multi-instrumentalist, my main instrument is the saxophone. I am headed into my thirteenth year of teaching music in the public-school setting. I have taught music at both the middle school and high school capacity in North County San Diego. My teaching includes most all things music, from high school AP Music Theory and Choir to Beginning Band/Jazz Band/Strings/Choir/Guitar at the middle school level. I look forward to continuing my education teaching while working with the students at Simi Valley High School.

I hold a Bachelor of Music in jazz studies performance from Cal State Northridge. I have also completed the music education studies course work (BA Music Education). I hold a Master’s in Education Administration, as well as my administrative credential from Cal State San Marcos.
My wife Stacie and I have a three-year-old daughter and a 17-month-old boy named Emma and Landon. For fun, I like to play music, attend concerts, and go hiking with my family. I look forward to meeting the SVHS staff, students, and community. I am super excited to be a Pioneer!
