I am so excited to work with the RVS students and expand their musical minds

Please see the tabs to the left or below for additional information concerning the band and lesson schedules.  Practicing at home improves skills and retention, so when we play together we sound SUPERIOR. The 4th grade musicians should practice for 10 minutes two or three times each week.  The 5th through 8th grade musicians should practice15 to 25 minutes two or three times a week.  This helps us to progress on the harder musical selections.  Putting the time in is worth it.   Superior is our goal!

Music and the brain


No other subject connects the right and left side of the brain as well as our physical and mental capabilities as BAND!


Extra help times:  Thursdays 2:31-2:51 pm  Wednesdays 7:17-7:37 am 

Additional days available upon request. 

These extra help times are perfect for the student who wasn't able to attend their scheduled lesson time due to a test or big project or a student who started a new instrument this year.  Feel free to stop by either of these times, no appointment necessary.  I'll be here!

Schedules may change last minute due to unanticipated conflicts or closings.
