Mickey Ratliff

Hi!  I'm excited about beginning my third year at Aiken High School, where I will be teaching Band, Orchestra, and Steel Drums during the day and Marching Band and Jazz Band after school!

I graduated from Morehead State University in Morehead, KY with a Bachelors degree in Music Education and a Masters degree in Music Performance.

 2023-24 will be my 30th year of teaching!

Before coming to AHS, I taught in Newberry, SC, Charleston, SC and in Indiana. 

Many of my past students and ensembles have experienced great success in musical performance, and I look forward to continuing that tradition at Aiken High!

The best way to reach me is via email at  

I'm looking forward to working with you!
