I am now entering my 6th year as a middle school general music and band teacher. I find that I am innovative and passionate, which works together to create a warm and exciting environment for my students.
I find that it is imperative to relate to my middle school students. To do this, I try and create fun, interactive lessons that meet the individual needs of my learners. Throughout their middle school years, students are exposed to hip-hop, patriotic music, classical repertoire and rock and roll. In addition, students in my general music classes perform on recorder, percussion ensemble, keyboards, guitar and modern band. Outside of general music, my band students also find ample opportunities to explore and express themselves within my classroom.
