My music moment represents joy. It represents freedom. It represents the sheer elation, bliss and revelry of HONK! – the yearly brass band festival that descends upon Boston, MA every year.
My friends and I playing in the band stands during a football game.
Playing my trumpet as a freshman in high school band! Pigtails in the wind and my best friend next to me! Forty years later, I’m a Music Teacher and Jim is still my best friend! The power of music!
As a full time gigging musician and teacher, this was taken when I taught a guitar class of 20 students at the Pacific Rim Charter school in Boston MA.
The most important musical moment of my life. My at that time 6 year old daughter and myself making our Carnegie HALL debut TOGETHER!! I was in the orchestra and she was the special guest solo artist.
Had the opportunity to perform the United States national anthem at a Chicago Bulls game in March of 2016. Representing both my cultures as a Mexican-American. Performed the anthem with Mariachi!
A few students and me at the end of a great music class! We are getting ready for our first concert, and it’ll be their first time performing on recorders. I’m so proud of how much they’ve learned!
My music moment is playing Mozart and Mariachi with my Boyle Heights students.
SingAkadamie provides once in a lifetime performing opportunities for youth. Pictured is us singing at Mega Fest. The only youth choir in the world invited to perform.
I teach drums and both my boy’s play. Tyler and Josh are natural players. My youngest (Josh) son didn’t want Dad’s help. He wanted his brothers. Proud Dad moment for sure.
In this picture my band traveled to Haiti for the first time. The outcome of the trip was life changing. We donated musical instruments to a random school in Haiti. The Principal had tears of joy.
The dude in the middle is me playing some sweet soprano sax lines at a studio in West Tennessee with some of other music educators for a collaboration album of unsigned songwriters.
Music is love, friendship, expression, passion. The moment in this photo captures what I love doing the most and what I can’t live without.
As my 2nd year at Stephen F. Austin State University began, I knew I had to challenge myself in taking new leadership role and practice harder to move up in the band. Today I’m Principal Trombonist!
Performing my very own track in an event in Maryland. The track talks about how people look at you like a superman when you succeed, forgetting to know that it’s just hard work and sacrifice we need.
I have been creating my own drum pieces for 10 years. I play drums as my music.
Almost every school day, at 7:30 a.m. my middle school jazz band kids lead their own rehearsal, without prompting from me, their director. Each day, 25-30 peers come to watch. It’s amazing to watch.
Josiah’s, age 7. Excellent player already and great young man for wearing his Marine outfit and saluting at his lesson on Halloween 2016. He earned a free lesson!
Expressing my heart in front of the congregation at church. I was EXTREMELY excited because I didn’t use sheet music. All free hand (Small victories mean a lot).
Thank you kindly,
I first started DJing at 9. I am now 14 and have had some really cool experiences. Spinning for the world and putting smiles on people’s faces is exactly why I love doing what I do. #musicsaveslives
