I am a high school instrumental music director teaching band, orchestra, and AP Music Theory. I also teach marching band. I have years of private euphonium/trombone teaching experience.
I believe that all students should be on the path to musical ownership, meaning that students should be able at the end of their high school tenure to engage in music independently, however that means to them.
