Flagler Palm Coast High School’s John Seth has been honored as one of “50 Directors Who Make a Difference” by School Band and Orchestra Magazine. He was featured in the December issue of the publication. This is the 19th year the magazine has highlighted a music educators from each state. According to the publication, current and former students, colleagues and parents submit nominations.


Mr. Seth has taught for 13 years, 9 of them at FPC. He was named the Teacher of the Year for Flagler Palm Coast High School in 2014. Just last year, Mr. Seth was presented with the Shine Award by Florida Governor Rick Scott. The award goes to educators and school administrators who make significant contributions to education.


Under Mr. Seth’s direction, students in his program consistently earn superior marks at all Florida Bandmasters Association contests.


To give a better insight into how John Seth views his music program and the role it plays, look no further than the answer he gives to the question “What is your proudest moment as an educator?”  His answer goes far beyond one moment. “It is always wonderful to see a student who can independently use his or her own experiences to be a good problem solver. To all the former students who are out making a difference in their communities or that have continued in music, I am very proud of you.”


Flagler Schools is very proud of Mr. John Seth and congratulates him for this honor.
