speakerWhat People Are Saying

A goal I have always aspired for is to be a teacher who inspires his students and encourages them to be the best people they can be. -- Jake Shelton

Jake has shown initiative to work with individual students and sections as needs arise during the rehearsal. He carefully plans the rehearsal to provide opportunities to challenge the more experienced player as well as provide support for the beginners. He strikes a great balance of being encouraging and challenging and makes band a place where students can be successful. -- Supervising Faculty

Mr. Shelton is confident and at ease with the students. He has excellent classroom management and deals with difficult students like a seasoned teacher. Mr. Shelton understands that in order to teach music you must be able to teach more than just notes and rhythms because music is nothing without feeling and emotion. Mr. Shelton is more than capable of sharing his insight with the students in a manner that they understand and will transfer into the pieces of music that they play. -- Cooperating Teacher
