Hans Philippeaux Band Director

Member of the Saint Columbkille community since 2018

Working at Saint Columbkille is a blessing. What has impressed me the most is the diversity and spirit of collaboration that reign here at the school. The principles of service and ministry have always shaped my life and I see them modeled each day. As the General Music/piano teacher and the band director at Saint Columbkille, my goal is to expose my students to a musical experience that lasts a lifetime.

I have been the CEO/Co-founder at Adagio Music Academy since 2002. Teaching piano is my passion, and I have worked with all age groups. As a Music Minister, I have worked with various church choirs for the last 25 years. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a bachelor’s degree in Jazz Composition and a minor in conducting. I have been married for more than 20 years and we have 3 children (2 boys and a girl).

My favorite bible texts are:

“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…” Ecclesiastes 9:10
“For God hath not given us the Spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
