Why Mentorship? 

What is mentorship? 

  • For our student musicians, mentorship is more than just having another student to help them in band or choir.  It is about building community through music.  

  • Students work together not only on music, but on any every day subject to build those lasting and meaningful friendships. 

  • Being at a new school can be very overwhelming, but knowing that you have someone; a friend to help, puts the minds of many students at ease.

  • Mentorship works like this:

    • 8th & 7th grade students mentor 6th grade students and/or beginners on their instrument.​

    • Mentors/Mentees are required to meet weekly for check in, but may meet as often as they like!

    • Meetings can be in person at school or with parent permission, outside of school.

    • Mentorship is a great opportunity to work with different students on small ensemble repertoire. Some even perform at the Solo and Ensemble Festival in February!

    • A Google Classroom is set up for mentors for communication.  

  • The Mentorship program continues through band and choir into students' high school years. This way students get the change to mentor and be mentored.  ​

  • Leadership skills are built and nurtured by teachers.

Why Mentorship??

Because Community Matters.
