My Students

My students are hard working children that love to showcase their talents. They revel in opportunities to show others what they know and what they have been working on! They love new things and get very excited about new challenges.

Our projects will focus on giving our students those challenges that will only enhance their education in all areas and make them better human beings.

They have the yearning and desire to become a better version of themselves in all areas, and my music room will encourage this desire and fuel their enthusiasm!

My Project

My students love creativity and variety! Anytime I introduce a new instrument, they want to find a way to add it into a performance or another piece! Whether it is in the classroom or in front of an audience at a community or school performance, they love making their music the best!

They are always thinking outside the box on how we can enhance songs and make them more musical and more pleasing to the audience.

I want to give my students as many opportunities and as many choices as possible to use various instruments to enrich the melody of the music.
