Originally from Michigan, Hubbard moved to Reno, Nevada, after his undergraduate studies where he taught band, choir, guitar and digital music for five years. After rebuilding a successful high school band program, he went on to pursue his master’s degree and later teach at the University of Nevada, Reno. While at UNR, he led courses in music appreciation, was a staff member with the marching band and directed the Nevada Concert Winds. Hubbard recently earned a DMA in conducting from Arizona State University under the tutelage of Gary W. Hill and Jason Caslor. While at ASU, he guest conducted both the ASU Wind Ensemble and Wind Symphony, served as co-conductor of the ASU Concert Band and assisted with conducting classes.
Hubbard is currently an assistant professor of music at Fort Lewis College, where he leads the Fort Lewis College Symphonic Band, as well as teaches saxophone, clarinet and other courses. He also works as a freelance audio editor, producer and saxophonist.Hubbard is interested in human perception and understanding of music, instruments and their relationships to performance (cognitive/perceptual neuroscience and social science) — especially regarding electroacoustics and digital musical instruments. He loves collaborating on and developing new multimedia and electroacoustic works, especially those that explore innovative combinations of acoustic and electronic instruments. His passion for these innovative combinations inspired his dissertation, “So, You Want to Do a Piece with Electronics? A Layperson’s Guide to Works for Wind Band and Electronics,” a detailed how-to guide on how to perform existing works in the medium. In addition to his DMA in conducting, he holds a Master of Music in wind band conducting from the University of Nevada, Reno, and a Bachelor of Music Education from Central Michigan University.

His work and experiences represent the nexus of music education and professional level performance, exemplified through the wind-band performance medium. He is in regular demand as a guest conductor and clinician.
