My Students

I currently teach music at a large 9th-12th grade high school in Alaska. We are a growing band program with many students involved in the band and jazz band classes as well as percussion and steel drum ensemble. Our school is one of the largest in the state with approximately 1650 students.

I am happy to serve these wonderful students in our area and take great pride in building their skills as musicians.

They are the reason I continue teaching music each day for the past 20 years. To see their eyes light up when they finally conquer that difficult passage in their music is a highlight of my day.

I am in the process of rebuilding this band program from the ground up. Many of my initial projects are aimed to replace dated or damaged classroom materials for student use.

Thank you so much for taking a peek into my classroom.

My Project

This project aims to support my jazz band tenor sax students, by purchasing new mouthpieces specifically designed for use in jazz band.

These tenor sax mouthpieces will help my students achieve a more characteristic jazz sound.

The throat of these mouthpieces is designed for jazz band tenor players. This will change the tone, projection, and pitch of the instrument. These mouthpieces will be checked out to students in jazz band for use in concerts and rehearsals. Once the year is finished they will be cleaned, sanitized and checked out to next year's tenor sax players. Thank you for considering donating to my class project.
