Banded Story:

Due to matters related to work, I spent my teenage years moving from school to school.  I found it difficult in elementary school to have meaningful relationships.  However, through band, I found a global family that I belonged to.  When I moved to different schools in middle and high school, I always had a place to instantly belong.   In many ways, band saved my life.  It gave me a purpose and helped me to learn important aspects of adult life such as discipline, integrity, honor, and excellence.  Today, I am a music educator that understands that music is so much more important than large group performance.  It truly has the ability to create a better world and inspire people to realize that they are created for greatness.  Ultimately, I see in each student, myself as a child.  We work hard to make music matter for the single individual.  Always remember that if you can change the life of just one, you may truly change the world.
