The newest addition to the faculty of the Nassau BOCES Long Island High School for the Arts (LIHSA) is Chris Scher.

“Chris has tremendous potential for success,” said LIHSA Interim Principal Jack Lenson. “His enthusiasm, knowledge and diverse skill set are an ideal combination for an educator. He is a team player who works well with colleagues and he has a strong rapport with his students; they’re drawn to him. I believe that Chris has the ability to attract additional interest to the music program and to help us build it into the future.”

He has taught guitar at the Rock Underground in Commack, saxophone at the Knox School in St. James and general music at Gil Breines Music in Deer Park. He will also direct the classical instrumental ensemble, drawing from his background as music director for the Sagamore Children’s Psychiatric Center and classical guitar director for the Tri-Community Youth Agency in Huntington.

LIHSA is located at 239 Cold Spring Rd., in Syosset.
