Ms. Heather Drake
Welcome to Chorus and Strings!
I am very thrilled to be part of the team here at Midland Valley High School and the Fine Arts Program. The focus will be building the chorus and strings program as well as sharing the talents of these musicians with the community.
Music is a universal language that encompasses humanity. Music can be felt physically, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, and even explained among the greatest literary greats, mathematicians and scientists. Music is found throughout the ages and is believed to heal the soul. Being a part of the Midland Valley Chorus & Strings program provides the opportunity for each chorus and strings member to explore, experience, and grow through a broad spectrum of music that will ultimately impact each musician’s performance.
I have high expectations for all musicians and look forward to honing their skills. Every student needs to be on time and come prepared every day. Being respectful and giving your best allows you to experience the most success.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. You can reach me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the school at (803)593-7100. I will do my best to reply within 24-48 hours.
