My Students

My students are eager to learn and we are looking for new, exciting, and engaging materials to add into our rehearsals. My students are dedicated to their instruments, help to instill pride in our school and community, and devote a lot of their personal time to the band program. I am grateful to have the experience to teach them from the beginning of their musical careers throughout the time they graduate from high school. Their dedication and willigness to work hard inspires me to bring MY very best self to the classroom each day and always work to learn and grow as an educator.

My Project

I teach students in grades 5-12 band in South Williamsport, PA. We have one full-time instrumental music teacher which makes moving between buildings and seeing students for lessons a challenge. By using the Sound Innovations Ensemble Development books, I am hoping to increase the productivity during our rehearsal time together. Students will be exposed to chorales, warm-up exercises, rhythm reading, and technique exercises to further develop their playing abilities every day. The rehearsal will become more of a learning lab to develop their playing abilities and less focused on solely learning concert music. It's my hope that through this curriculum, the students will continue to grow and develop as a musician.
