Hello, I'm Ben Sexton and I am the MAD (that's Music, Art, and Drama!) Scientist at WFES!!! I have been an elementary music specialist since 1997 with stops in Polk County, TN, Gordon County, GA, and Gilmer County, GA. My wife, Dr. Donna, and I have been married for 18 years. She is my muse!

MAD classes at WFES seek to engage students in all areas of visual and performing arts and to connect these disciplines with real life experiences. In short, I am here to help your student find their voice. 

When I can find a spare minute, I enjoy traveling the globe with Dr. Donna. We have been to Canada, England, Scotland, and France so far. We hope to travel to Austria, Switzerland, and Germany in the near future, as well as Asia. I am an avid UGA fan and I play golf every chance I can get. Donna and I enjoy a great cup of coffee and consider ourselves to be foodies. We enjoy spending as much time with our nieces and nephews as we possibly can. I also function from time to time as a consultant, a studio musician, and an arranger/composer. In other words, I KEEP BUSY! :)
