My Students

Our band is a group of students always working towards a common goal. My students are a group that always comes together and works extremely hard to be better musicians and better students. They come to the band room each morning ready to tackle our agenda for the day. They pursue musical excellence and set ambitious personal goals for the day.

My students are driven, intelligent young people working to better their personal lives through music.

The school we make this music together in is a small, urban school district. We work together to create music here and give students an opportunity to work together in a safe, fun, and friendly environment. In turn, the students are sure to work diligently to make our band even better.

My Project

These materials will enable the woodwind students to play their instruments. Quality reeds and accessories are a vital part of the playing experience for middle school and high school students. The accessories added will also aid my students in being safe during these unprecedented times.

It is much easier, and more exciting, to play your instrument when the instrument is in working order; these reeds are an important part of that experience.

My students will use these reeds throughout the school year for various ensembles and numerous performances. The students will use these in Marching Band, Jazz Band, and Concert Band.
