Music has always been always been a Huge part of my life. Whether it was listening to my mom sing her favorite songs as a kid, learning new songs/and instruments, or performing. I have always been fascinated by music. Hopewell has deepened my love for music. I got involved the beginning of my junior year in high school. They sent an email to my orchestra teacher requesting for more violinists and i was recommended. I eventually made my way through the newly founded intern program to, 1 year and a half later become a teacher. I love teaching music and have had so much fun here.My favorite memory was last summer, I helped run our music camps.every day we would have a break outside so the kids weren’t sitting inside all day. One day a young student handed me pine needle branch and said “I got this for you!”. It was really nice and I proceeded to wear it for the rest of the day. I love working with all of my students both younger and older. And I love that they want to learn more about music. music Education is extremely important and it is tragic that it is being cut in school. Music Education is important because in addition to raising test scores and Iq’s, it creates a healthier more well-rounded personality. also,who doesn’t love hearing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star 30 times a day. We have to stress the importance of music education In schools to keep music class from being cut. In addition to Music lessons hopewell also teach community/social skills with classes, we teach self-growth by giving out good techniques for practicing and studying that can transfer over to skills and these are in addition to what music already gives the student. Hopewell has a very wide variety of people when it comes to our community. everyone from volunteers to donors, from students to parents, and from siblings to those who stop in to hear our concerts are all apart of our community. I believe the best thing that the community can do for Hopewell is to continue to donate time and help us out. we greatly appreciate all donations whether it’s time, money,or something else. All donations are such a large help to us. Continue donating!
