Music Director

“I became a teacher to share the gift of music with children and help them discover and develop their God given talents.”

What a great reason for Dale Woock to teach!  He graduated from Concordia College, St. Paul, Minnesota, with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He is the music director for St. John’s Lutheran School and Church and has been teaching since 1980.


For Mr. Woock, music is his family’s passion. His wife, who also teaches kindergarten at St. John’s School, is the director of the Adult Chancel Choir and two of the school's choirs.

Mr. Woock loves to encourage students to develop their musical talent and is very passionate about his calling. He teaches music for grades 1-8 and is responsible for the Primary Choir. As he works with the students, he helps them engage in musical opportunities for school events and Sunday morning worship. His devotion to his students and to his faith is evident in all that he does.
