My Students

This year I have the honor of starting at a new school with a fresh batch of some musically inspired students. These students range from Young 5's to 5th grade.

They are a cultural, unique, energetic, and motivated community that are in need of new and exciting artistic experiences.

My students come from a very diverse and engaging learning community, many of which from low income families. These students will get to explore a whole new world of music with your help and kindness.

My Project

My personal music philosophy is that students will excel in the arts with hands on experiences. With these amazing instruments added to our classroom, we can truly create masterpieces.

These instruments will inspire creativity, while nurturing the components of rhythm, melody, and harmony.

With these instruments my students will be able to compose, connect, and perform on various levels. Together my students and I will be able to nurture social and communication skills while building self-confidence.

Please consider donating to our music room. We would be forever grateful, and the music we create will inspire and change our diverse community for years to come!
