I am the proud music teacher of 250 wonderful middle and high school students. Many families of the students I work with are in a lower income range, and they come from very diverse cultural, familial, and economic backgrounds.
My students are dedicated, and motivated to learn and to share their passion for music with their community.
The music department is currently growing at both the middle and high school that I teach at in my district. We are growing so quickly, that the number of students involved has tripled in the past 3 years! I am inspired by each of my students every day, and I am grateful to watch them develop a deep love for music and performance.
For our Spring Concert, each performing ensemble will work on 4-5 pieces. One band piece, containing the sheet music for each instrument, costs and average of $50-$100 each.
We perform in four concerts each year for the community, and we need new music to learn and perform for each concert!
Please help us reach our goal of performing the piece Fate of the Gods for our Spring Concert.
This piece will help us learn new musical techniques, and we will also study Norse Mythology, which is what the piece is written about. Music teaches students a physical skill, but we always connect what we are working on to the history and emotional meaning as well!
