My Students

At my school, we have exceptionally talented and dedicated students who are willing to go the extra mile to have a dynamic and challenging music education. Our students may face very difficult situations at home and around them, but their willingness to persevere and their tenacity has set them apart.

Our music students have gone on to do great things in the community and in higher level music education.

We are honored to know that many of our scholars have received scholarships and high placement due to their work in music. We are very proud of their work and are excited to see what great things they will do this year. Music has done great things for our most at-risk youth. Let's help them continue their great work!

My Project

We offer guitar lessons in small groups, ensemble classes, semi-private lessons and in band settings. In order to do this, we need to keep our instruments up and running. That means we always need more guitar strings and guitar picks. These strings will allow us to maintain all our guitars thus allowing for more students to take part in our music classes. The guitar picks are needed by each musician in order for them to play the guitar. With our multiple singing groups, these microphone cables will allow us to keep our students singing. Presently, we have enough microphones, but not enough cables. There is nothing like having a performance, and having a faulty cable. With these cables, we can insure that we will not have a technical break down. The opportunity to sing with a microphone is a huge incentive to our students. It is important that we deliver on that promise.
