I am so beyond proud of my orchestra students. .
Today I got an email informing me that a student of mine passed her Master Musician Music Theory Test. This program is one of the highest honors a student can achieve in my county, the Master Musician Program. .
This wonderful viola player already made it into the All State Orchestra and nailed her Solo and Ensemble performance in front of judges last weekend receiving Superiors with Distinction. .
The best part…my entire 3rd period Orchestra CHEERS and CELEBRATES with her because we have an amazing supportive community of musicians in my room. We are all in this together. .
After 17th years of teaching public school orchestra, I am so grateful that I found a method to teach that embraces excellence, nurtures the human spirt and doesn’t burn me out! .
I NEVER have to stay after school, teach during lunch, or come in early because of my method, and year after year my students soar. Through this method, my students literally RUN the classroom while I monitor learning, as it should be.
Tomorrow we find out if this amazing student passed the rest of her portfolio and performance exam. Either way, she is a star in my book!
