Bruton High School
Sample Tranformative Project

I began playing clarinet in the fourth grade at Tabb Elementary School. I selected the clarinet because my godmother had one in her attic. I fell in love with how it sounded. In high school, I was introduced to several of the different types of bands. I was able to play with our marching band, concert bands, jazz bands, pit orchestras, and pep bands. It was so much fun to play all types of music. After I high school, I continued with music with my undergrad at Christopher Newport University and grad at Kent State University. At this point, I enjoy creating music with my students.
