My Students

My students are hard-working, caring young people with a desire to be outstanding musicians. They come from many different financial backgrounds. While some students' families can afford private lessons, new strings, and accessories, others give it their all every day with what can be given to them through school and outside resources. Hurricane Harvey affected our students in a significant way. This year, many of the students who would have been preparing for Solo and Ensemble Contest missed at least 2 weeks of school, putting us far behind while our contest calendar remained unchanged. We would like to give all our students the ability to learn the same music with less pressure to perform at contest. Our varsity orchestra students will still compete at contest.

Despite their vast inequalities, my students support each other in every way possible through peer tutoring and strong student leadership, however, they need better resources to reach their full potential!

My Project

My students will use these books and speakers to learn challenging pieces of solo and ensemble literature and perform them at the end of the year.

The speakers will allow multiple ensembles to rehearse simultaneously in different classrooms, using the metronomes we already have to produce superior performances.

We've noticed that our metronomes that we use on a daily basis are not loud enough.

The books will be the basis of their performance literature and make for differentiated learning based on level of performance ability. Many of our students have never performed in this capacity, and this performance will be an experience that they will grow from both as musicians and learners.
