An academy is a group of people who gather around a common love. Here at ASAPH, we have a music academy. My students are teaching beginners.
B.J. is teaching her second group of beginners on trumpet, sharing her love for music.
E.M. is teaching her first group of beginners on trumpet.
N.B. is teaching trumpet beginners as well.
P.S. is teaching several trombone students.
A.M. is teaching solfege (music theory).
R.C. is leading the "B" band in practices.
O.J. is teaching keyboard and leading small music ensembles.
T.M. is teaching music (recorder) in schools around the area.
I meet with these "young maestros" from time to time equipping them with the tools they need to grow as young teachers. They are developing leadership skills that will be useful in whatever they decide to pursue in life.
ASAPH sponsors make these programs possible...providing instruments, stands, chairs, written music, visual aids, and a clean, safe work environment. Music happens almost every afternoon here at ASAPH. Without you, we'd be whistling.
