It is my pleasure to welcome you to the John Burroughs High School Instrumental Music Program. You are in store for an excellent education, great memories, and a lot of fun. I am so excited to have the opportunity to teach you this upcoming year.  We have plenty of exciting opportunities for the upcoming school year, so I hope you are ready for a great time. With hard work, dedication, and a good attitude, this year will help each student develop as a musician and grow as a person. As a teacher, seeing that growth and development is what makes my job truly fulfilling.


You are very lucky to be a part of such an exceptional music program, and I am very lucky to have such an amazing parent group (JBHSIMA) to help make sure this program is supported to give your kids the best possible opportunities and experiences.  I am also very lucky to have such an exceptional staff by my side to make sure each student gets valuable and relevant instruction and training; you would be hard-pressed to find such an amazing, dedicated, and experienced staff anywhere else.


I hope every student and parent gets involved as much as they possibly can. The more you are actively involved in this program, the more fun you'll have. We are a big family here at John Burroughs High School, and we rely on each other to make sure that each student gets the best possible musical experience.


I look forward to having a great year. I'm excited to meet every parent and student involved in the JBHS Instrument Music Program. Welcome!
