Band Director's Welcome
It is my pleasure to welcome students and parents/guardians to the Eugene Reimer Band website. Like Ian Levings, our principal at Reimer, often says, 'we have created a band program at Eugene Reimer because the process of learning a musical instrument has been scientifically proven to make people smarter'.
My reasons for teaching band not only include increased brain development, but connections between students and in the community, the development of artistic and emotional expression, and the opening of an avenue of communication up to the rest of the world. To top it off, playing music is incredibly fun!
Music to me has the ability to bypass spoken and written words and is a piece that is vital to the human experience.
I am greatly looking forward to working with each student this year, watching them learn and grow into inspired musicians!
