James Barker Visits Woodville ES

Woodville Elementary School Students were delighted to get a visit from James Barker on February 9, 2017. Barker, a former Woodville ES student, spoke to students about the importance of goal setting, and not giving up on your dreams. Barker also performed a few of his band’s songs, and answered questions from enthusiastic students.

Barker started his musical journey at age four by playing fiddle. He switched to guitar when he was 12 and started playing fill-in for guitar players in bar bands at ages 16 and 17. Around that time, he had his first-ever gig, playing at a local cattlemen’s association.

Thanks for sharing your positive messages with us, James.
