My name is Randall Key and I am the Director of Bands for Hartselle City Schools. I attended Wallace State College for two years and transferred to the University of Montevallo, where I received a Bachelors of Music Education. After graduation I was hired as an Assistant Band Director for Cullman City Schools and taught there for ten years. During that time I received my Masters of Music Education from the University of North Alabama. In 2004 I came back home to teach at my alma mater which was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I recently completed an EdS degree in Instructional Leadership from Samford University which has helped me strengthen my teaching capacity.
I am married to Amanda Key who is a third grade teacher at F.E. Burleson. We are blessed to have two sons Payton and Preston that keep us entertained and on our toes. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family, performing, touring, and serving as a musical consultantant throughout the states.
Hartselle is very blessed to have outstanding students and a wonderful band program. I am honored to serve as Director of Bands for Hartselle City Schools and encourage students, parents, and community members to "Be A Part Of OUR WINNING TRADITION".
