My Students

My students' love of learning is infectious! They are highly motivated and willing to do what it takes to uphold our program's high standards. They take ownership and have a sense of duty in the classroom, school, community, state, country, and world.

Excited and ready to share their musical gift with the world!

My students are committed to collaborating with others, competing at the highest level, and succeeding among the best. They care about our school's reputation and strive to create a positive culture in today's world.

Adding enough individual class period tuners to my inventory, I can teach the students one of the most important skills as a musician.

If I tune their instrument, they are in tune a day; If I teach them to tune, they are in tune for a lifetime.

As my musicians grow, I need to ensure they have the tools needed for success. Providing individual tuners for class, students are able to properly prepare their instruments for class, participate in ear training exercises, and
