My Students

My students are like most other students with the exception of their circumstances. My students live in a high poverty town. Many of my students are being raised by their grandparents or foster parents. We are in a Title I school with 100% free lunch and breakfast. Many of these students eat only at school because there is little or no food at home. The world is a difficult place for many of these students, and school is the one safe place for them to be kids.

They have experienced so much in their young lives.

I want to provide them with my best so they can be their best and hopefully pay it forward. Having the equipment we need will go a long way to help them.

My Project

When learning a musical instrument, the proper foundation is critical. Having a great band method is paramount to great learning. The method I have chosen is tried and true. I hope to have my students grow musically using these books.

The love of music is the goal of every music educator.

These books will be used in both the beginning band class and also for students jumping into the intermediate band with little or no previous experience in order to help them better assimilate into the more advanced group. Thank you for helping me teach the foundational principles of band.
