Michael Pens
Instrumental Director


We are thrilled to welcome Michael Pens as our new Music Director at Los Gatos High School!  Michael Pens grew up in Denver, Colorado.  After receiving his Bachelors of Music Education from the University of Northern Colorado, he moved to San Jose, California to begin his teaching career.  He taught band and orchestra at Burnett Middle School and San Jose High School for two years before moving to Pacifica.  In 2007 he began teaching band, choir, and AP Music Theory at Terra Nova High School.  Under Pens' direction, the Terra Nova Band saw a period of growth both in numbers and in success.  Mr. Pens is very excited to become a part of the music program at Los Gatos High School and looks forward to being a Wildcat!
