My Students

My students cover the whole spectrum. They are of different ages, ethnicities, religions, talent, countries, languages, wealth, and so many other demographics. Despite their differences, they do have at least one thing in common. They recognize that music and the arts have changed their lives in a positive way and they continue to grow and learn.

Our school is at the highest poverty level in the country.

Nearly all of the students qualify for food assistance. These students are not afraid to work for what they need in life and they inspire me every day.

My Project

Mark Twain said “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow- mindedness”.

It is so important for young people to see other places in the world.

This project will help many of my students leave their home state for the first time. This trip will take my students to Austin Classical Guitar Fest, one of the biggest classical guitar festivals in the country. While they are there they will perform, take workshop classes, premier new music, attend a virtuosic concert, explore, and so much more. But to me, the most important part of the whole experience is that my students get to leave their familiar corner of the world. They will get out of their comfort zone and experience many new things. Not only to do these things, but to thrive in the face of unfamiliarity is one of the most valuable lessons my students can learn from me before they leave my classroom.
