Hello My Name Is...

Mr. Brill

Mr. Brill

 

Welcome!

It is my pleasure to welcome you as a member of the Eagle Valley Middle School Orchestra, Choir, or Band.  My name is Mr. Jon Brill and I have been teaching Band, Choir, and Orchestra at Eagle Valley Middle School for the past fifteen years.  I received a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from the University of Nevada – Reno in 1999. I am excited and looking forward to a successful and rewarding year for the students and the program.

A commitment as a member of any music program, Choir, Band, or Orchestra, makes you an automatic member of an extremely unique and talented musical team.  This is a team that works together, performs and rehearses together, achieves together and supports each others talents.  We want this group to be successful.  In order to achieve this goal, there are certain expectations and requirements that each member is expected to follow and observe in order for the music program to be a success.  For us to achieve great performances, to achieve a high level of performance, and musicianship as a group and individual, it is important that we understand and are in agreement of our musical roles in the orchestra, band, or choir.

I am looking forward to a successful year for all of us.  I appreciate your support and look forward to meeting you soon. Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns, comments or questions.
