Sara White » Welcome to James Hart Orchestras

Welcome to James Hart Orchestras

Mrs. White has been teaching for Homewood 153 since 1999.  I welcome all string students into the orchestra classroom 4th through 8th grade.  We work hard throughout the year to make not only beautiful music, but also to help students achieve a multitude of life skills that will stay with them throughout their lives.  Music is a passion, but student learning is my daily focus.
