Concert Time

The seniors were delighted as we visited their tree display and played some holiday music. It is amazing what the kids are doing after 3 months of instruction, only 1 day a week. Each school got a taste of how much fun it could be playing an instrument as we played our music for them at concerts and tree decorating ceremonies. Staff and parents were delighted to see the children so excited!

Good Job

I must have really done a good job. Unfortunately, the children got so used to my way of teaching that they are having a hard time with the old music teacher. Many parents have been e-mailing me and writing letters to me expressing their concerns and disappointment. Many children have quit. I hope the parents and children express the same concern when I apply for the band job in September. I hope I can convince the district to make the band position full-time.

Back to The Classroom

Although I like my job, I feel like everyone needs a change. The change I had as band teacher since September was wonderful. I will miss the kids I taught and I hope they will love music the way I do. Good luck to all my band students.
