Hello, my name is Stephen Meyers. I grew up in Festus, Missouri and went to Festus R-6 High School. I knew from a young age that I enjoyed playing and listening to music. I went to the University of Missouri – St. Louis for College as a music major with an emphasis in percussion. I also took many classes in writing and journalism. In 2013, I received my Masters of Music Education with an emphasis in percussion from the University of Missouri – St. Louis. When I joined the Kingston family, I got my certification in library and gifted as well. I have been married to my wonderful wife Caroline for 15 years. We have two dogs, Honey and Rainy, and a cat named Kripky. We enjoy traveling and reading. I enjoy hiking, camping and playing in my band Tumpt.
