Gabe Ruschival


My name is Gabe Ruschival (him/his), and l am the Band and Music Electives Teacher at Tointon Academy. I have been teaching music for over eight years in high school and middle school settings. I have my undergraduate degree in Music Performance and teacher licensure from University of Northern Colorado, and my master’s degree in Music Performance from Southern Methodist University. I love helping students realize their potential as musical artists, and watching them grow through their development of music skills and musical expression! I love all kinds of music and have played in orchestras, bands, jazz bands and toured the world in rock bands. I love my family, doing projects around the house, and classic and cool cars, especially mustangs!
