High School Instrumental Music

I am a 2013 graduate of the University of WI - Stevens Point with a degree in Instrumental and General Music Education. I began teaching at Southern Door High School in September of 2014. I teach four classes at Southern Door High School; Band, Introduction to Music Theory, AP Music Theory, and Music Technology.

Band is, as one might expect, a year long class in which students will play in concert band, marching band, and pep band. Students will also have the opportunity to join jazz ensemble, pit orchestra, and other extra-curricular musical groups. 

Introduction to Music Theory is a one semester class which is open to all high school students. Students will learn many of the basics of music reading and writing, as well as some basic piano skills. This class is geared toward band and choir students who want to further their musical education, or for students taking Music Technology who want to have a better understanding of the music they are attempting to create.

AP Music Theory is a one semester class with the AP test scheduled near the end of second semester. Students will dive deeper into music analysis in an attempt to prepare them for the AP Music Theory test. Introduction to Music Theory is a prerequisite for this class.

Music Technology is a class for those who like music, but would rather focus on the "offstage" aspects of performance. This includes, stage tech, recording, and creating music using programs such as Audacity and GarageBand.
