Incorporating Music into a High-Performance Curriculum
Dr. Richard Ripani, longtime band director at Hume-Fogg Academic High School is featured in the January edition of Teaching Music, a publication of the National Association for Music Education. Dr. Ripani talks about how he aspires to create a music program that is integral to a student’s overall education plan, not simply a fill-in elective. By all accounts, he has been very successful. This year, and most years, 15 of the total 40 students selected for Honor Jazz Band come from his program.
