My students are a diverse community of learners. They come from many different countries, demographics, and socio-economic backgrounds, and participate in the band program with a love and passion for music.
Our band program serves all students regardless of their ability to pay for an instrument or materials.
These talented students are members of a band program that consistently receives accolades in the community and state for its musical excellence: Our bands have been invited to all-state conferences and the Superstate Festival many times in the past 26 years.
An increasing number of my students are unable to rent or purchase any type of an instrument or accompanying accessories. These students deserve the same opportunity to play with quality equipment. They deserve every chance to be successful in instrumental music.
As an experienced teacher, I have been able to experience the difference great reeds, mouthpieces and accompanying equipment can enable my students to perform at a higher level.
Many of my students have difficulty purchasing quality reeds and equipment at out local music shop.
I want to help them feel supported as they learn their instruments by providing equipment that allows them to play with ease. This will help them better engage and grow to the highest level musician possible and keep them motivated to do their best.
Thank you for support continued support in the lives of my students!
