My Students

My students are suburban middle schoolers, navigating that tough stage of life. For many of them, band is a refuge that helps them through!

Playing an instrument and learning musical skills is of high interest to my students, and they work hard to achieve and improve.

We have three levels of band: beginning, intermediate, and concert, and some students also participate in an additional jazz band class. I become quite close with my students over the three years they are with me and I desire to provide them what they need to learn.

My Project

Band trips are great performance opportunities for my students and also a wonderful opportunity to build memories. This year’s trip will have us traveling to Orlando to compete at Music USA Festival and enjoying some time at Universal Studios.

While many of my students will pay the cost of this trip, I have some that cannot.

Some of our families have experienced job loss, divorce, loss of a parent, and other events that make finances difficult. While their basic needs are met, there is very often no extra funds for trips like this. I feel it is very important that every member of the ensemble have a chance to go on the trip, and your donation can help make this possible. Opportunities like this trip can be the highlight of the year for some of my students!
