What a wonderful semester we have had so far! Students who put forth amazing effort get amazing results.
It's hard to believe that I have been teaching in Rensselaer for 14 years now. This program was about dead when I returned to Rensselaer in 2004. After spending a few years in the band program, administration moved me into the choral department and after 3 years, I was the only director 6-12 grade. What an experience I have had.
I am so proud of their effort, ability to match pitch, development of their tone, and the bravery they display when they project their voices.
About 3 weeks left during this semester and then new students will be coming in. Many accomplishments so far, and more to come! I really enjoy teaching my students!
