“[My teacher] has an understanding of what I’m going through and has a way of letting me know that she’s there and she cares through the music.” – Ninah • Student • Charlotte, NC #FacesofME Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Ridge Road Middle School

I love my good friend, Mekel Rogers. We perform a lot of his music, including this year's "Carol of the Kings" and currently "The Oncoming Storm."

Here with a bunch of my closest friends! We performed "God Bless America" before the game. 🏒🎺🎼

I can FINALLY shout this to the world!!!

I did a little something a few months ago, all because my amazing CMS Arts Specialist, Windy Fullagar/Windy Fullagar, needed some stories on the effects of Music Education in public education for a grant application.

VERY long story short, the Country Music Association Foundation (CMAF) for Music Education awarded CMS one, of five, national grants to CMS, took an interest in my story and asked to do this feature on me. After several hours of filming, here is the final 2.5 minute video. I am not sure how they will put this out into the world, but they emailed me this yesterday and then gave me permission to share!

I am very humbled and still in disbelief.

Last Tuesday, we were asked by Windy Fullagar, CMS Arts Specialist, to make a surprise call to her uncle Charles, in Biloxi MS, to play him Happy Birthday because he was turning 80. He was so thankful and loved it so much, especially because his brother-in-law unexpectedly passed away that same morning. We gained a new Uncle that day for the Raven Band.
We sent him the video and Windy said he's been showing it to all of his family. 🥰

I think this will be our new fundraiser... Raven Birthday Band-o-grams!!! My sister-in-law is turning 50 tomorrow, so we'll be doing this, free of charge. 😅

It was a busy week for all of my young musicians!

Unpacking the Science: How Playing Music Changes the Learning Brain

Researchers in the fairly new field of music neuroscience are finding that kids who learn to play a musical instrument also develop important skills related to literacy, math and mental focus.
