My Students

To begin with, I love teaching all my students. They are bright, aspiring students that encourage me to try new things and teaching techniques every day. This school has taught me so much in a little amount of time. I will forever cherish my time with these students.

We grow together so not only am I teaching them, I am learning as well.

My students span from the ages of 12-18, as well as a few 8 and 9-year-olds. The band is growing and we want to keep it that way even though the county is small and money is limited. Even with this, my students' love for learning and music is rich. I want to show them that music is more than just organized sounds in time. Music is what feelings sound like. Be expressive. I also have many students now interested in making and recording their own music. How wonderful is that! I also work with my students to develop their sounds and songs in a recording setting. As well as playing and learning new instruments.

My Project

The purpose of this project for an iMac, video camera and auto tune software is to build upon the music technology and visual arts technology curriculum that is being created as an extension of the fine arts initiative to help promote creative outlets and hands-on experience for those who seek to pursue careers, degrees, and scholarships to production schools. This initiative will help students build a portfolio or collection of works to present to colleges and or universities in the visual, performing, and music technology realm. Having the correct tools at their disposal will give them a better chance to hone their crafts as well as build for their futures if they choose to pursue their dreams and aspirations. Thank you in advance for helping me to help them develop these skills for their prospective futures in the arts. The future is bright for them and it’s starting now with you and me. Thank you.
