My Students

Every one of my students has their own story, some will make you laugh, and some will bring tears to your eyes. As an instructor in a high crime and poverty, but low in finances and resources city, I try to create a safe haven for them to escape their harsh reality, so they can be free from their harsh reality, even if it’s just for a moment. That’s a moment of freedom and no stress that they might not have had before. It may be a time for some to smile.

In their eyes is a spark of hope.

They are growing and learning in the same small, tight-knit, music community that inspired me to be a teacher. Forming a band family sometimes feel better than their biological family. They are adventurous, risk takers, bold, free and inquisitive. They are mini inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet. They are the future and I want to give them a great start to their long successful career.

My Project

This will allow for the voices of our children to be acknowledged, recognized, and heard clearly. These students in all of the classes put forth a massive effort in their art for it not to be properly heard. There is barely enough funds to accommodate basic maintenance, let alone other things needed, like amplifiers to ensure optimal performance through your sound system

Your contribution will do more than reach all in the Fine Arts classes, it will also encourage creativity within our students.

This project is not just for my band, but it is something that will have their sound and hard work projected into the hearts of all who hears.

Grades 9-12
Nearly all students from low‑income households
