My Students

Our school focuses on developing well-rounded and respectful young scholars. I was completely blown away from the first time stepped foot into the school. There is a strong sense of community between the teachers, administration, and the students, and I can tell that there is a real investment in the success of this school's fine arts programs.

My students are my inspiration.

They challenge me to continue researching, performing, and creating. I hope to offer them a thorough musical education and to provide learning opportunities that are both engaging and meaningful. As I like to tell my students, excellence is not an accident. It is a daily pursuit. I can honestly say that I have an excellent group of students, who work with diligence and honor to be the best version of themselves.

My Project

At the beginning of rehearsal each day, my students and I warm-up our bodies, minds, and voices through a sequence of exercises. I work diligently to bring new warm-ups to the class to keep the children engaged and focused. The resources such as the Choral Warm-Up books and the Tuning Fork will allow for more diverse learning materials.

As the students learn the exercises, they will have the opportunity to lead the class in warm-ups.

This gives the children a sense of ownership in the process. They will learn rounds to build their musical independence and madrigals to learn about intonation and working together.
