Hello and welcome to 5th and 6th grade Orchestra. My name is Mr. Jacques, pronounced "Jakes.”
I graduated from Northern Arizona University. I grew up a band kid and I am passionate about teaching music to children. I taught general music for a few years and helped the district with the initiative to bring Orchestra to our elementary campuses. I am excited to have the opportunity to share something I love with your child and I hope to ignite a passion in them.
I believe that playing music, learning an instrument in band or orchestra, or singing in a choir makes people better. I want to try and make people better, because better people will make for a better world.
