The layout is simple: advocacy, important links and resources. I hope that you may find this page informative and helpful. Thank you for supporting our program and your child in their musical endeavors. We accomplish amazing things together or not at all- I am truly fortunate to work with a community that gets it!

Supporting Your Musical Child


Your child is undergoing a very important and challenging process through participation in the band program. Your positive encouragement and support will make all the difference as they venture through these uncharted territories. If there is any way that I can assist you or your family at all, please don’t hesitate to contact me. You and your child’s commitment to music education will pay off big in the long run- it will only make your child smarter, more capable and at more of an advantage when applying for colleges. So please- stick with it and encourage your child to. Learning an instrument is a truly beautiful and powerful thing that will change you and your child’s life forever.
