Sistema Fellows from the New England Conservatory Intern at JAMM

Sistema Fellow, Hana Morford, works with Jemima during Rock Band
Two of this year's ten El Sistema Fellows from the New England Conservatory (NEC) interned at JAMM for one month.  Hana Morford (violist) and Megan Moran (violinist) chose JAMM among Sistema initiatives worldwide because of its reputation in best teaching practices.  Hana and Megan worked with our young string players and modeled strategies to encourage improvisation.  Juneau's musical community also benefited from having these exceptional musicians in town for one month.  Megan played in the pit for Floyd Dryden's musical, West Side Story, and both Hana and Megan performed with the Juneau Symphony.  Ladies, thank you for giving so much of your time and talent to our Juneau community.

Megan Moran works with a 2nd grade general music class.

A truly Alaskan experience for Hana and Megan:  Staying up for the Northern Lights!
