My Students

As I am sure every parent and teacher says, "I have the best kids in the world" but unlike them, I'm telling the truth. My students face hardships I couldn't imagine and yet, they come in to Band everyday with a smile, positive attitude and willingness to learn. They are hard chargers. They are the tip of the spear. They are first on campus and last off. They come in before school, after school and over breaks. They do not complain. I am forced to step up my game every single day and I wouldn't have it any other way!

My Project

When I have a student struggling with a lesson, I will have the ability to allow them to use the iPad and corresponding apps to help cultivate and foster learning. The apps are fantastic and provide the materials the student is having difficulties with, but presents them in a way that is closer to the culture of video games and gaming that they are accustomed to. Also, the iPad offers the ability to compose and this skill sharpens their musicianship by reinforcing the skills of reading music. The tuning app allows for a very precise tuning and you can scan in all the music and make marks to aid in your students' development!
