Her own musical education began in her father’s band hall in Harper, Texas where she spent her afternoons learning to play any instrument she could find in the storage closet while waiting to go home. Darcy received her Bachelor of Music in 2004 from West Texas A&M University.
Mrs. Williams bands have performed at The Midwest Clinic in Chicago twice (2015, 2021), the Western International Band Clinic in Seattle, and are consistently state finalists in the TMEA Honor Band contest.
In addition to teaching Mrs. Williams clinics both students and music educators across the United States. She is the author of two books on education: Teaching Rhythm Logically and Pacing for Success: Beginner Band.
Darcy is married to John Vogt, and together they have a future All-State Band member – their daughter Caroline – and 2 spoiled dachshunds, Lucy and Jack.
