Welcome to Chorus!

Mr. James Markey
Clyde A. Erwin Middle School Chorus


    Greetings!  I am James Markey and I am excited to be a part of the Clyde A Erwin Middle School family.  Prior to coming to CAEMS, I served for 12 years as director of the Canton Middle School choral department.  I was born and raised in New York City before moving to Myrtle Beach, SC where I lived for 10 years during high school and college, completing graduate work at Coastal Carolina in teaching vocal music.

         I am committed to excellent singing and highly disciplined students.  I have always believed in setting high standards for myself and expect the same from my students.  Together, we can do amazing things!
