One of Dr. Crandall’s passions in life is driving his motorcycle through the Hill Country roads in Texas. When he is not on his bike or playing with the Hightones, you may find Dr. Crandall in the gym lifting weights. “But most of all, I enjoy teaching the discipline of music to my Schreiner students.” He began teaching at SU in 1997.
