About the Program
In 2006, I started the orchestra program in legacy Shelby County through Collierville Middle and Schilling Farms Middle. Over the years, it has expanded and grown. I am proud to still be starting new orchestra students and sending high school ready students onward. My goals are to create students with the technical ability while developing their love of learning to play music. I look forward to being part of your student's musical journey.
Orchestra curriculum is centered on learning to play a string instrument. The orchestra will study a varied repertoire of music: classical, folk, fiddle, movie theme, and popular styles. The course will also include composition, music history, listening, and music theory. Practice records and calendars are located at the bottom of the page for you to print out.
My class agendas are posted weekly. Click on "Classes" at the bottom of the page to access my weekly agendas.

Remind101 changed their free policy to teachers with fewer than 150 students. This year I have too many students to qualify for free Remind101 texts. I may set up a special trip remind but be using email and my website as my main sources of communication. I may set up a spring trip group but will not be able to use for grade level reminders.
