My Students

My students are the young, promising, intelligent, and passionate students that will be Chicago's future. They come from all over the city of Chicago and represent a multitude of racial and cultural backgrounds.

What my students have in common is a driving passion to achieve excellence in life and in music.

Though I am new to the community, I can see how incredible this energy is in the band and music program. These students are unstoppable and this technology will help them achieve their goals!

My Project

My band students are highly motivated to get better. Each day we work together as ensemble to grow as a group and as individuals. My students need a class set of builder books and chorale books. These technique books will be our guide. The Bach and Before books are especially exciting because we can all look at the music together and sing as well as play this masterful music.

Most of my students don't receive private instruction, so these books will be the guide to their personal growth.

The technique books will help them master their instruments so that they can play musically and effortlessly. That's where the magic can really begin!

Grades 9-12
Nearly all students from low‑income households
