Music Makes Us Advisory Council Chair Hand Over

I recently completed my two-year term as Chair of the Advisory Council for Music Makes Us that serves to support the 44,000 students and 188 music teachers across MNPS.  I handed it over to Brian Sexton, whom is a wonderful community leader within arts and music, and he will be an excellent leader as we emerge from the pandemic and focus on rebuilding some programs and bringing further investment to support our teachers and students.

One such effort to support our student’s performance opportunities is the “Metro Marching Classic” where marching bands across Davidson County participate in an exhibition of their marching shows this year.  It’s a free event and all are welcome to attend on October 1st.  See flyer below for details.

New Chair for Music Makes Us Advisory Council

Speaking of schools, I am wrapping up two years as Chair of the Music Makes Us Advisory Council and pass it over to Brian Sexton, who has served as Vice Chair for the last two years.  Brian is a fantastic community leader and will be a fantastic leader of this initiative.  This is an area I’m passionate about and like many of you I’m sure, my experience in band and music programs in school was the most formative and impactful growing up. I want to help ensure kids have the same, if not greater, opportunities that I had.
