My Students

My students are 100% on distance learning. We are using wonderful website such as smart music, and sight reading factory to continue playing and learning new music techniques.

We will continue to better ourselves as musicians and band members even during this trying time!

This instrument will provide students who may have been sharing, or using an instrument that is not the best quality to continue to learn.

My Project

Even during this time of distance learning, we are continuing our progress in music education.

We will continue to provide our students with worthwhile music activities and projects.

Some students instruments are at home and are in need of repair. Since we are not able to physically see them and fix the instruments on a daily basis as before, we are in need of instruments (a clarinet) that will work and provide the students with a fair chance to participate in their education. We continue to play music, through technology, and I would love all my students to have equal chance to participate successfully.
