5th and 6th graders are welcome to join band. It is an opportunity to learn something new and fun! We learn how to play the instruments, read musical notation, and how to care for the instrument. Playing in band develops self-confidence, responsibility, and requires the students to work cooperatively as a team. We give concerts during the school year and also play at flag raising assemblies. I hope to see you in band!
My Education and Professional Background
Bachelor degree in Instrumental Music Education from the University of Michigan Masters degree in Saxophone Performance from Arizona State University
My Educational Philosophy
All children should have the opportunity to learn about music and how to play an instrument. Music forces the brain to work in full capacity. Music speaks beyond the spoken word, and across cultures. We must keep music in our schools so culture is not lost. No matter what your skill level is, I would like to help you learn.
