Zachry Middle School
Students prepare music from different iconic musicians (ex: Michael Jackson, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Queen, etc.) arranged by Mark Wood, cofounder of the Trans-siberian Orchestra. Mark Wood along with his team of other artists (such as Grammy Award winner Haydn Vitera) will give the students workshops not just over the music, but movement, stage presence, and improvisation. The students learn how to use their own creativity to tell their personal story through their instruments. Students gain the confidence to express themselves and show who they really are. They learn they can play any genre of music. As students start discovering all they can do on their instruments, they learn how it becomes a part of them. It’s something they can turn to in a low, stressful, or happy point in their lives. Vote for our school!
