My Students

My students come to my class each day because they love music. As a HS Band director, I get to work with the same students for four years and really get to know them. I get to introduce them to marching band and develop their concert band playing and see their learning grow. When they leave our school after four years, they have learned so much and really love music.

These students don't always get the support they need and desire at home so it is my job to provide that everyday.

My teaching is driven by the joy that comes from their faces after a performance or great rehearsal where they can clearly be proud of their work. This pride is the fuel I use to continue pushing them daily for greatness.

My Project

The Apple iPad is an educational tool that develops the students' independent musicianship through music literacy and immediate performance feedback. The Apple iPads will allow students to develop note and rhythm literacy through a variety of games and assessment tools.

With Apple iPads students will be able to become independent musicians.

Your donation will go towards two Apple iPads, a great tool to help students reach their musical potential by developing music literacy skills through music apps and will provide immediate assessment to improve performances. Creating love, passion, and independent musicianship in the classroom will be supported through the use of the Apple iPads.
