My Students

I have the privilege of teaching music to a wonderful community of students who are passionate about learning and creating music. I currently teach a 5th grade beginning band, two middle school bands, and a modern band course. My students love challenge and opportunity. Many students enjoy working above and beyond what is assigned to them in class, trying new instruments, or applying their knowledge across multiple disciplines in music.

At our school, we build community around making music together.

No matter what course they are enrolled in or what level they are at, my students are all part of our "band family." My students are supportive of each other, kind, and positive. The culture of inclusion and teamwork is incredibly strong. I couldn't ask for a more fantastic group of young musicians.

My Project

The Modern Band (a.k.a, "Jam Band") course that I created this year has been incredibly popular at our school, with over 60 kids attempting to sign up for the first trimester. The addition of a bass amp, an electric guitar and amp, as well as an iPad, will allow more students opportunities to participate in our Modern Band course, which focuses primarily on guitar, bass, drums and electronic beat-making on the iPad. Currently, students have to rotate instruments since we do not have enough to provide one instrument per student. These materials will allow students to be part of the music-making for the entire class!
