Music Director

Michael Broyles

Michael Broyles has been directing music groups since he was in the first grade, where he got his start as leader of the Rhythm Band! He sang his first solo in church at the age of seven, and the Minister of Music had to borrow the water fountain step stool to put behind the pulpit at the First Baptist Church! His love of music enabled him to be in Hugo Junior High and High School choirs and bands, and his ability to play piano allowed him to accompany solos, ensembles, weddings, church services, etc.
He graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University with a degree in Music Education, Piano emphasis. He has hours toward a Masters in Conducting, and he has studied at Silverlake College toward Kodaly certification—a form of sight reading and music analysis.
He has taught in the Oklahoma City area school systems of Western Heights, Moore, Edmond, and Heritage Hall. He has been a professional staff singer at many churches in the OKC, Boston, Philadelphia, and Fort Myers, FL areas. While in Boston, he was a singer in the Boston Symphony Orchestra choral group —Tanglewood Festival Chorus, where he appeared on many televised shows with the BSO and Boston Pops.
He is currently employed by Tulsa Opera as a director in the inaugural season of Raise Your Voice!, where he oversees three middle school choirs as the TPS system strives to bring vocal music back into the classroom. He is accompanist for the music program at Hale High School, and was recently a professional Tenor at Trinity Episcopal, Tulsa.
He is the father of a very talented and successful OSU graduate—Elizabeth. She is currently living in Boston and works in the fine dining industry.
Michael has expressed his excitement about assisting our church in worship experiences through music, and we are so blessed God called this very talented person to share his gifts with God’s people in Okmulgee. Come
