Welcome to the Tison Roo Band!

Meet the Teacher
Click here for a link to my meet the teacher video! I am originally from Longview, Texas. I received my Bachelor in Music Education and Bachelor of Music Performance from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My primary instrument is clarinet, but I enjoy playing and teaching all instruments! I am so excited to be teaching in such a great district, and I cannot wait to teach my favorite subject (BAND!) at Tison Middle School.

About Band
Your child is now part of an exciting class that offers the chance to learn to play music, develop responsibility, work as a team member, and develop self-discipline. Studies also show that participation in music can increase a child's performance in academic areas. Surveys of All-State musicians in Texas have proven that students involved in music regularly score higher academically on the SAT test than the state and national average scores.

In addition to learning to play an instrument, band is also an important social experience. Students will form many friendships and take pride in being a member of a successful team.

As always, thank you for your never-ending support of our programs and the arts in general. You are greatly appreciated!
