I am Luke Alliger and I am the new band director at Mayer Lutheran High School. I recently graduated from Concordia University Chicago (River Forest) with a degree in music education.
I was married in July to my wife, Katie, and shortly afterwards accepted the position at Mayer Lutheran. In my free time I enjoy fishing, golfing, watching baseball, hiking, and listening to music.
My decision to become a teacher was an easy one. I wanted to impact students the way my band director influenced me. Add into that my love for music and my passion to share that love with students. I also knew that there is only one place that I can truly express my faith and that was in a Lutheran school. It is important to remember that God gives us all of our talents and we must thank him for that daily.
