Michael Ratliff



This is my first year at Baptist Hill, and I'm excited about the opportunity to share the art of making music with you!
Before moving to Charleston, I taught band in Indiana.  In addition to teaching, I've been an adjudicator, clinician, arranger, and performer for over 20 years.  I earned a Bachelors degree in Music Education and a Masters in Music performance from Morehead State University in Kentucky.  My wife, Dianne, is an excellent musician and teacher in her own right.  We've been married for nearly 25 years and have two grown sons - Dylan and Lennon.  We recently lost our beloved dachshund, Tipper, to old age and illness just before the move.
I'm looking forward to many great performances and musical experiences at The Hill!
