Welcome to my music room! Students in 9th - 12th grade enjoy the various challenges thrown their way as they embark on a new journey in making or "doing" music, singing, and playing instruments such as keyboards (electric), recorders, etc. and working together as a team in small ensembles. The music program is a new program; therefore, it depends heavily on financial support in being built. With the rise of the music program throughout this school year, my students are eager to experience the numerous doors music can open in our urban, high-poverty area. For the first time in the history of our school, my students have the chance to actually dive into learning music through making it and not simply taking notes about it due to not having any classroom materials or instruments available for a hands on experience. Through this program, I hope to give my students a hope they've never known before.
