I teach three music courses at Davis Middle School; 6th Choir, 7th Choir, and 8th Choir.

There are two choirs at Hillsdale High School. The Concert Choir is a non-audtioned group open to any student who wants to learn to sing and develop their musicianship skills. The Chorale is an auditioned group that performs a diverse and challenging repertoire. Both choirs perform several times a year in various venues.
