Building a Library

My Students

My students are energetic and love learning about music, dance, and theater. They are hard working and dedicated. They are fun loving and supportive of each other.

These students have so much untapped potential, and I am hoping that with the resources that we can raise funds for here will help them achieve those goals.

My students love musical theater! This repertoire can help them expand their knowledge and even explore outside of their comfort zones into the world of classical repertoire.

My Project

We are starting a new course at my school and we need music, textbooks, and repertoire to make this class possible. The resources needed for this course are crucial to the success of the class and the students taking the class.

These resources will help aid students in the understanding of voice science, vocal technique, and vocal literature.

The course will help students gain independence from the teacher and allow students to make thoughtful and informed decisions about repertoire for auditions in and outside of school. These books will also help students beyond their years in high school and into their future.
