My Students

Do you enjoy listening to music? Did you ever play music? There is no greater thrill than seeing the excitement on my students' faces when they make those first sounds on their instruments.

Once those first sounds begin, the excitement and love of music just blossoms!

Through hard work, dedication, and supportive community within the band room, my students' love of playing grows with each passing day. With your help, that love of playing as a group will continue to grow.

My Project

My students love to play their instruments! For my woodwind players, this can be a challenge at times due to a lack of reeds. Within our school community, many of our parents work long hours or multiple jobs making it difficult to get to the local stores to purchase reeds. Having students continue to use old reeds while waiting for parents to purchase new ones keeps them from playing their very best. Even worse is when they have no reeds at all and can't participate.

We have fun playing music together!

A good supply of reeds allows us to do just that.
