My Students

I teach High School Vocal Music in a Title One district. All students in our county qualify for free breakfast/lunch. Additionally, our county has just recently been hit with both hurricanes Matthew and Florence! Having a regular creative outlet through music is not just part of a well-rounded education — it is essential for a student's emotional health & well-being. In addition to helping them be happy, healthy, and productive students, many of our graduated students have gone on to pursue the arts whether that be through teaching, performance, or production.

My students perform for community events as well as local school and district events..

These students are full of energy & absolutely love the time they spend with each other. These students work so hard in each performance, I want to help make them feel special and appreciated in any way I can.

Our students learn about music, music technology, and performance; all which reinforces their literacy & speaking skills while building relationships with others throughout the county.

My Project

My students want to learn how to read music! By supporting this project, each student will have his/her own music theory workbook to help with this project.

Research has proven that students who study and learn how to read music are productive members of society.

Please help my students achieve success in becoming better musicians by supporting our Music Theory Workbook project.

Many of my students sing and want to learn to play an instrument. The knowledge they gain by learning how to read music will help them reach their fullest potential in the world of music. Music reading was meant to be!
