Middle school music teacher Concetta Stevens recently invited 10 high school students to visit two middle school band rehearsals in March and act as mentors for the younger musicians.

Encouraged by high school music teacher Christopher Neske, the high school students demonstrated mastery on their instruments by modeling such sonic and technical attributes as tone production, dynamics, articulations, complex rhythms and blend. 

“My band students were extremely inspired by the high schoolers and so grateful that they worked with them twice,” said Stevens. “The high school students were incredible role models and mentors, and I will be inviting them back in the near future.”
