My Students

When my students walk into my classroom, we jump right into making all sorts of noise. Sometimes it sounds great and other times, well, not so much! However, the students know that when the sound we are creating isn't quite right, the more excited I am to work on it with them.

These awesome kids are willing to hop on board, work on the fine details of the music with me to create beautiful music for everyone to enjoy!

The success of them working together to accomplish this greatness is priceless and it's so rewarding seeing them be successful!

My Project

As class sizes continue to grow, so does the band! It's so exciting and I love sharing my love of music with all the students and strive to instill a passion in them to be lifelong music lovers! However, our xylophone is in serious need of being replaced as it has been played on for years and is no longer in tune.

A new xylophone will not only help my percussion section, it will a allow others band members to relate their sound to a pitch that is correct!

It also brings an excitement that helps students stay engaged!
