My Students

I teach sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade band! My students are immensely excited about starting this year. All students at my school receive free breakfast and lunch with the help of a community eligibility program.

My students are passionate, eager, and exceptional learners.

They are some of the most caring and open students I have ever witnessed. Because of the economy, the fine arts budget in our area has been cut, but my students continue to thrive. We could use any assistance in providing the necessary tools to succeed in the band!

My Project

My students have been working incredibly hard this year on becoming the best musicians that they can be! With the end of this year approaching, we are already thinking of ways to improve for next year and with those improvements come a need for new materials to use and accessories!

We are seeking reeds for our woodwind students that are high quality and will last longer than the generic reeds.

We are also seeking additional tuners, pickups, and metronomes so that the students don't have to share the devices. We are looking forward to potentially receiving the Sterilite 18 Quart boxes as well! We will use them to properly store our method books so that they can be used for years rather than just months.

We are excited about everything we have accomplished this year and cannot wait to see what the future holds for us! Thank you for helping us to achieve our goals!
