This year will be my 14th year of teaching, 9 of which have been at Slidell Junior High. After graduating from Loyola University, I first began teaching band at Holy Cross School in New Orleans, followed by St. Tammany Junior High and Bayou Lacombe Middle. I am the band director at SJH and will also be teaching Guitar. My main instruments are euphonium, trumpet and guitar. In my class, you will learn the fundamentals of playing your instrument and performance. My goal is to prepare you to continue your music education in high school and to teach you the values of musicianship. We are going to have a great year!
