Paul Trapkus was formerly a music teacher at Silver Creek High School and recently relocated to Ohio. However, while he was at Silver Creek, he created an award-winning documentary that focused on students' passion for music continuing after high school.
Although he did not have a background in videography, he embarked on the project that was daunting, producing about 150 hours of raw footage. He spent hours and hours editing the footage and the finished product, entitled "Carry the Tune", won an award at the 2015 San Francisco Film Festival.
Another of his accomplishments at Silver Creek was the creation of a fiddle group at Silver Creek, that performs Irish and Scottish tunes at local community events.
