Welcome to the Little Mill Middle School Band Program! I am so excited to begin my first year at Little Mill Middle School, and I know it's going to be a wonderful year! It is my hope to continue the wonderful traditions established by the previous LMMS band directors.
Aside from the musical development that band offers, educators and researchers feel that playing an instrument can build self-confidence, support mental and physical discipline, and is the best opportunity for group participation without losing the importance of each individual. I expect a lot out of the students in my class, and they will be challenged to develop both musically and academically. As parents, you can support this philosophy by asking your child to play for you at home; you will be impressed and proud of your child for the progress made throughout the year. If students need additional assistance, please encourage them to come in for help with me before or after school.
During the middle school years, band is treated as an academic subject. The class will meet every day, and concerts will be held in the evenings throughout the year. There are many extracurricular activities offered at LMMS, and your child has the opportunity to participate in more than one! In the past, band members have also participated in basketball, football, drama, track, cheerleading, and academic clubs.
I’m looking forward to working with all of the students and parents. My first and foremost goal is to find a way to help every student fall in love with music and continue it into high school.
