Play it, Chamber Music and Solo Repertoire for All.
Help me give my students chamber music and solo technique text books that enable them to take control of their music making process on their own.
Our students come from all walks of life. We are the largest school in the state of Alaska with twenty-two hundred students. We serve a community of students where two-thirds of them live below the poverty line. It is our differences that make us strong. We are the most diverse school in North America with over one hundred languages being spoken in our district. Eighty-four percent of our student body is non-white and there is no majority. Because of these differences, we have a strong bond in our school spirit and it is evident in all aspects of the school.
The Orchestra program is a three-time Grammy signature school recognized for its musical success and accomplishments.
The orchestra program averages over one hundred and twenty students yearly and serves all types of students from the most accomplished honor level students to students with disabilities. We have an inclusive classroom where the use of technology will allow differentiation for visual learners.
Our school serves a title I population but the students' potential knows no bounds. As we add more technique to our orchestra curriculum, amazing things are happing. Students are quickly seeing the fruits of their technical studies and are enjoying the new musical doors that are opening to them.
We have started chamber music units where students in the orchestra are now forming small ensembles and running their own creative music making experience.
To see their progress is truly why I became a teacher will continue to be one. The text books we are respectfully requesting will help our students form duos, trios and quartets as well as develop their solo playing with more technical complexity.
