Some people make a difference in life through teaching, some through music. For Patrick Schwan, director of bands for Magic City Campus and Central Campus of Minot High School, it's both.
Schwan chose the simple and rewarding career of a music teacher from the passion for music that stirred inside him when he was just a little boy. Born and raised in Minot, he began playing the drums in fifth grade and then switched to the trumpet a year later. He has never looked back.
