Music Doing Good in Service
Music Doing Good in Service lends a helping hand to area music students by providing in-class piano accompaniment for soloists, ensembles, choirs, and musical theatre students.
Music Doing Good in Service provides teachers and students with an experienced pianist, educator, and conductor to help with a variety of needs, including:
- Record and rehearse UIL repetoire
- Run a sectional rehearsal
- Take the lead on a campus-wide musical
- Provide individual coaching
This innovative program fills a huge void in that most fine arts budgets do not allow for the additional expense of hiring part-time accompanists and class sizes prohibit much one-on-one musical experiences.

Notable Student - Emily Garcia
Emily Garcia is a senior at Aldine ISD’s Carver High School. A four-year choir student, she started singing in elementary school, where she was reluctant to sing alone. Recently, Emily successfully auditioned for a spot in the All-State Choir, earning one of the twelve positions for fiercely coveted by girls from around the region. In the recent Region 33 solo/ensemble, Emily excelled and earned the highest ranking possible, performing Charles Gounod’s setting of Ave Maria. After graduating from Carver in May 2018, Emily is considering majoring in music or veterinary science at Prairie View A and M University. Congratulations to our FIRST Music Doing Good in Service honoree, Emily Garcia.
“We can’t imagine a better fit to the choral program at Presbyterian School! Mr. Hall’s talented fingers, keen understanding of musical styles, and willing spirit combine to support our students as they gain confidence, develop as musicians, and strive towards strong performances.”
