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

Yes, a Vibraphone! We have been performing music all year long that has required us to use a vibraphone which we don't currently have in our inventory. We have been making due by using our concert marimba, but it just doesn't have the same tone or resonance that a true vibraphone has.

Adding this WONDERFUL Majestic Concert Vibraphone would help us to perform literature beyond what we are currently performing and would allow us to have a more authentic performance of the literature we are currently working on.

Vibraphones offer another tone color that we can add to our ever expanding palette.
