Mrs. Bethany Hirota
Briscoe MS Bengal Band
Associate Band Director
Mrs. Hirota-Mabry is beginning her 15th year of teaching as the first associate band director for the Briscoe Bengal Band! She has taught and adjudicated at the middle school level her entire career and has loved every minute of it!
Ms. Hirota is married to Gary Mabry and spends much of her free time with her husband “raising” four distinctly different cats!
Ms. Hirota is quite active in the musical community having directed St. Brigid’s Legacy Handbell Choir and the Travis Park United Methodist Handbell choir, where she also serves as a youth sponsor!
She has been a percussionist for the Boerne Community Band and the Travis Park Celebration Band, but what really serves as “therapy” for her is drumming and harmonizing with her band, Down for the Count!
