Henry Smith

Henry Smith is currently teaching English, Algebra II, and 20th century Music History at Buxton School.

About Me

Like so many victims of the music world, Henry was incapable of actually playing anything, and so embarked on that most cliche journey of becoming a music writer. He recently graduated Bard College, where he majored in Music History, writing a thesis on John Cage. He now teaches at Buxton School, a small high school in western Massachusetts.
