Welcome to Orchestra!Email: email@example.comPhone: 480-279-6900Schools: Coronado, Bridges, Power RanchOffice Hours: Connect via the Remind App
Welcome back to school! My name is David Jacques and I am so excited to be teaching orchestra classes here at Coronado, Bridges, and Power Ranch this year! We have an amazing opportunity in front of us to create an orchestra program custom built for our school, our community, and most importantly our students. I write this letter as I sit at my desk in the corner of an empty room filled with only a handful of stray chairs and a dusty piano recently pulled from the time capsule that is the band storage room (there’s some cool stuff back there).
We have a blank canvas, and I cannot begin to put into words how excited I am to fill that canvas with color, and students, and character, and community, beauty, love, craft, care, emotions, and of course a little bit of music along the way.
I would love to be able to tell you all the fantastic things that your kids will get to experience in orchestra this year (and for the next several years hopefully), but they won’t all fit in this letter, or can even be written down. After all, my favorite composer Gustav Mahler once said, “If a composer could say what he had to say in words he would not bother trying to say it in music.”
I very much look forward to meeting each and every one of you and sharing in some amazing musical experiences with your children. If you ever have any questions, comments, or snide remarks please feel free to send me an email, or reach out through the Remind app. You may try calling and leaving me a voice mail, and I will try getting that voice mail. However, I’m at three schools, if you want me to get back to you relativly quickly, give the Remind app a go! (find the class codes below!)
