My Students

I will be starting my fourth year teaching at this tremendous school. When I started, the school was transitioning from a traditional middle school to an arts academy. I teach instrumental music. Currently, I teach four bands and two orchestras. We are a public school that is 4th through 8th grade. Students are focused and driven to excel in the arts as well as academics. Students begin their journey at an early age and develop their passion for the arts as they progress through the program.

My Project

We are in the process of putting the finishing touches on our spring instrumental "dream concert" and are in need of costumes for our featured dance soloists. The costumes include two pairs of Oxford shoes, dress pants, dress shirt and belt. This will be for the La La Land number. We also need a lab coat and wigs for the Back to the Future sequence.

Music students take learning to the next level when they collaborate with other art forms.

Each individual art form adds to the audience and musician's experience individually. When music is combined with dance and visual arts, one can not deny that the experience is enhanced. We have a concert planned for you with surprises and wonderful visual enhancements.
