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 - Saul Mena
Saul is a four-year choir student at Carver High School. He started singing at the age of 8 while attending church. His greatest musical memory while attending Carver was participating in the Houston Heritage Society’s Christmas celebration. Saul is undecided about his immediate post-Carver plans, but he is certain his future will involve some aspect of music (performance or production). Some of his favorite artists are Travis Scott, Drake and Migos. In his spare time, Saul enjoys playing soccer, video games, and dining on seafood. Saul credits music for driving away boredom and keeping him focused on positivity. Music Doing Good in Service salutes Class of ’18 graduate Saul Mena!
