Mr. Shane Bass

I am a 3rd generation, born and raised Ocalian. I graduated from Belleview High School in 2003. I have spent the last 13 years in the music field in Ocala. Even though this is my fourth year teaching full-time at Vanguard, I have been involved in the music and theatre department since 2010!


Also, I have spent time a lot of time at the Ocala Civic Theatre as a musician, actor, and music director. Most recently, I music directed Cry Baby in Summer 2017. You may have also seen me play Marius in OCT's production of Les Miserablés in September 2013. Or maybe, as Jesus in Godspell in Summer 2006. I have been a part of over 45 shows in the past 13 years in Ocala.


I am extremely excited to bring my skills to Vanguard, and build the program where it should be!
