Michael Ratliff



This is my second year at Baptist Hill, and I'm excited about the opportunity to share the art of making music with you!  I am especially excited about starting the new Steel Drum Program here at Baptist Hill!
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 25 years and have two grown sons - Dylan and Lennon.  Before moving to Charleston, we lost our beloved dachshund, Tipper, to old age and illness.
I'm looking forward to many great performances and musical experiences at The Hill!
