Let’s Band Together


No other experience in a child’s school life will compare to the beginning stages of learning to play an instrument. From the squawks and squeaks of the initial days to the ultimate goal of reading and playing complex musical pieces, the band provides students with the valuable life lesson of facing a challenge and, through diligence and practice, reaching a goal.


The band is the ultimate cooperative learning experience, with students mastering their individual instruments and collectively making music and performing for their peers and parents.


It’s also a lot of fun, and I should know since I’ve been playing since I was in the fourth grade. I’ve forged lifelong friendships with band mates spread all over the country and world.


My love of playing also has taken me to some interesting places. I attended the prestigious Interlochen Center for the Arts boarding high school in Michigan, and the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY where I double-majored in performance and music education.


While I love performing with my clarinet, it doesn’t compare to the joy I get helping others fall in love with their instruments and harmoniously banding together. Welcome to another great year with the Arbor School Band.
