He took his first teaching job in Higley, AZ and later moved to Safford, AZ where he taught both high school and junior high choir and musical theater, as well as private voice and piano lessons for the next decade. While in AZ, Mr. Keith completed his Masters Degree in Music Education through the University of Florida. Soon after he moved to Utah making Spanish Fork his home at American Leadership Academy. His show choirs have competed for regional championships with Fame Show Choir Events. His vocal groups have received consistent superior ratings at festivals throughout Arizona and Utah. He has four children: Jaxon, Kodee, Gemma, and Lottie. They are the light of his life.
