Biography

Hello Ishikawa families. Thank you for all the support you give to this community, school, and especially your children. Welcome to the Ishikawa Orchestra and General Music program.

My name is Jessica Graves. I have been teaching in Mesa Public Schools for a few years after graduating from Arizona State University where I received my Bachelor of Music Education. I love all things music: listening, performing, composing, classical, pop, folk, country. I consider my taste to be eclectic. I have been a member of wind ensembles, string ensembles, as well as full orchestras and have played on various instruments from both the strings and winds family. I love music and I love learning new skills. 

I also love teaching those skills to others. I have worked with students in K-12 music classrooms and have found a true passion for working with the young budding musicians. I look forward to working with everyone here at Ishikawa and instilling not only a love for music but skills and qualities that will help each student become a happy and successful member of the classroom and greater community.
