Since the mid 1980's, Mr. Wallace has been involved with music in Fairfax County Public Schools. In the 1980's, he began his music education at Laurel Ridge Elementary School, later attending Robinson Secondary for Middle School and High School. Eventually, Mr. Wallace left the Northern Virginia area to pursue his Bachelor's degree at the Eastman School of Music and Master's Degree at The Juilliard School. These studies, however, did not prevent him from coming back to Fairfax County during the summer breaks to work at various music camps. In the mid 1990's, Mr Wallace moved back to the Washington D.C. area to build a career as both a performer, composer and educator. He has worked with concert and marching percussion sections all over the county including those at Madison H.S., McLean H.S., Woodson H.S., Robinson H.S., Langley H.S., Longfellow M.S., Kilmer M.S., and Thoreau M.S. He has taken these groups to various conferences and competitions including The Midwest Clinic, The Bands of America National Percussion Festival, and the Virginia Music Educators Conference.
