My name is Mr. Daugirdas and I’m thrilled to be filling in for Mr. Martin this year at LPHS. I teach Concert Choir, Advanced Treble Choir, General Music, and Piano. In addition to teaching, I love to compose music for choirs, orchestras, and soundtracks. Looking forward to getting to know the great people of the LPHS community.
