Welcome to BAND!!


4th Grade General Music
5th-7th Grade Band

About Me:

I grew up in Hillsborough, NC and graduated from Orange HS in 2003. After receiving my Music Education degree from Elon University in 2008, I moved to Patrick County, Virginia and fell in love with the area I now call home. I taught 4th-7th grade general music for my first 4 years and have been teaching 5th-7th grade band for the past two years. This year will make my 7th year of teaching in Patrick County, and I could not be more excited for the year to begin!

About the Band Program:
Participating in a band program helps develop positive qualities in students, such as responsibility, dedication, discipline, self-confidence, teamwork, leadership and much more. Students in grades 5-7 are eligible to participate. Class is offered twice a week at each elementary school. All students perform twice a year for Christmas and Spring concerts. In addition, the 7th grade performs at the Carowinds Music Festival in the Spring. The students in Patrick County are awesome, and it is a privilege for me to teach them the joys of music.

Please check out there rest of the site for information on how to clean your instruments, resource links, and upcoming events on the Calendar.
