Lindsey Daniels: Up and Coming

posted May 15, 2017, 7:00 AM by Shelley Burge   [ updated Sep 8, 2017, 10:26 AM ]

Ms. Daniels was recently featured in the Hattiesburg American as one of the Hattiesburg area's up-and-coming young professionals.  Congratulations, Ms. Daniels!   Read the article on the Hattiesburg American website.

From the Hattiesburg American:  
Up and Coming: Lindsey Daniels
Band Director Lindsey Daniels


Meet Lindsey Daniels, 27, of Lumberton, band director at Forrest County Agricultural High School and a freelance musician. She earned master's and bachelor's degrees in music education from the University of Southern Mississippi, where she graduated with highest honors. Daniels conducted her student teaching at Hattiesburg and South Jones high schools. She is married to Logan Daniels. Her parents are Debra Daniels and Ty Daniels. She has one sister, Allison Daniels, and a grandmother, Anna deMontmollin.

What advice would you give people who want to get into the same line of work as you? Practice, practice, practice! Your musical instrument becomes an inspiration and a facilitator for knowledge. Many of my students look up to me because of my musical achievement and work ethic.

Why did you choose to live and work in the Hattiesburg area? Hattiesburg became my home while attending USM for my bachelor’s and master’s degrees. I have built a strong network of colleagues, mentors and friends within the Hattiesburg area. Being able to have those resources at my fingertips made it an easy decision to live and work within the Hattiesburg area.

What do you do in your free time? What free time? My passion for music has become my work over the years. You can usually find me playing saxophone with Southbound Crescent or keys and sax with the Lanna Wakeland Band on the weekends. I also freelance as a guitarist and teach private saxophone lessons. Most of my free time consists of an instrument being in my hands, but when I get the chance I love spending time at home with my wife and three dogs (Zola, Darcy and Octavia).

If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would it be and why? This is a tough one! I have many heroes and inspirations that I would love to meet, but if I had to pick just one then I would have to go with John Lennon. His powerful song "Imagine" has had a hold on me for as long as I can remember. He was a catalyst for change and promoted self-expression without boundaries. As a teacher, I hope to make a difference in the lives of my students. Having a conversation with Lennon would be enlightening and energizing.

If you could go back 10 years and give a younger you tips or advice on life, work or anything in general, what would it be? Stop living life in the fast lane and make time for the things that matter. In the words of Tesla, "It’s not what you got, it’s what you give." Give not only to your family, friends and students, but most importantly give to yourself.
