My Students

My Middle School band students are in their 1st, 2nd, or 3rd year of playing their instruments. All student musicians are given numerous opportunities to perform around Baltimore City in a variety of venues. The Concert Band has a high standard of excellence with all students focused on bettering themselves as musicians, students, and positive members of the community.

I teach at a Title I school with one of the most diverse populations in Baltimore City.

Students come from all over the world to learn in our building and my classroom is an important outlet for students to express their creativity and grow their talents.

My Project

Instrumental music programs rely on the purchase of some necessary supplies such as reeds and valve oil not only for the function of the instrument, but also to keep the instrument in working order. My students use instruments provided by the school free of charge but are not always provided with reeds for saxophone and clarinet or valve oil for trumpets. These supplies help keep the band program running and keep students in the band without the financial stress on them or their families.

An investment in supplies such as reeds and valve oil is essential to keeping the band program running strong.

Students should be able to enjoy the process of learning an instrument without worrying about breaking their only reed, or about playing through valves that are perpetually stuck.

Please consider donating to help my students!
