Food for thought...

The reason we do music is because it makes us feel something. At the end of the 2015-2016 school year a very talented student came to see me after school. This individual accomplished quite a bit in his two years with me, taking advantage of every single opportunity that I presented to the students. It was a couple days after our final concert and he told me that all of the ensemble's awards and acknowledgements from the year had been great and it felt nice to have his individual accomplishments acknowledged as well. However, he said that the greatest reward was the musical experiences he gained from his two years here at Stapley. 

 

I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge our program's achievements over the years. Please bear in mind that the greatest rewards cannot be viewed on this page-the gift of making music with friends every day!
