The Madison Central Band is recognized nationally for its high level of performance as well as consistently being regarded as one of the top 3 programs in Kentucky. The band most recently performed in the 2019 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and was 2nd place in the KMEA State Marching Band Class AAAAA Finals. Since coming to Madison Central in 2006, the band has won three state championships (2014-16) and has been the state runner-up on three occasions (2009, 2013, 2019). Mr. Jaggie has been recognized for his work at Madison Central by being named the KMEA District 11 High School Teacher of the Year, the Phi Beta Mu Outstanding Young Bandmaster in Kentucky and most recently the Richmond Chamber of Commerce Educator of the Year in 2019.
Mr. Jaggie graduated cum laude from the University of Kentucky with a B.M.M.E., where he was a two time drum major of the Wildcat Marching Band, and in 2006 graduated from the University of Louisville with a M.M. in conducting. In addition to his studies at UK and U of L, Mr. Jaggie has attended conducting workshops at the Royal Northern College of Music (Manchester, England), the Eastman School of Music, and the University of Texas at Austin.

Over 25 different students from his low brass private studio have made the Kentucky All-State bands.
Even more than the accomplishments of the program collectively, Mr. Jaggie is most proud that the students of the band apply the same hard work and dedication to the learning environment every day at Madison Central. The overwhelmingly positive experience of the students and their ability to transfer that to any number of different fields beyond high school is the ultimate reward and validation of a life devoted to music education.
