I work with our chamber orchestra ensembles. We meet before school at 6:50 AM. We will be starting off the year rehearsing two different ensembles: The Lesher Advanced Chamber Orchestra and The Lesher Chamber Orchestra.
I LOVE ANYTHING written by C.S. Lewis. Some of my other favorites include: Little Women, Oliver Twist, ALL of the Harry Potter Books, and The Hunger Games series.

Here's a Little More Background about me as a Teacher: I became a music director because I LOVED my music teachers growing up (I still keep in touch with most of them to this day). One thing that I noticed about some of my favorite music teachers was that they all had the uncanny ability to make their rooms safe and inviting places where we students could express ourselves in a unique and different way. -This has always been the standard that I hold my classroom and ensembles to.
I like to tell everyone that I don't "just teach music"... my goal is to teach you all the importance of camaraderie, self-expression, creativity, beauty, respect for one another, hard work, and responsibility. -Music is merely the "vehicle" in which you learn all of these things.
