Music as a Tool. Music as an Art.
Geneva Le is a Texas-based music educator primarily focused on band education in the public school system. Raised in Dallas, Texas, Ms. Le began her band career on the Bb clarinet in sixth grade, finding joy in both ensemble and solo performing opportunities as was provided throughout her middle and high school years. At the end of her high school career and in pursuit of her passion of not only band, but leadership in the context of music, Ms. Le auditioned and was contracted as a Drum Major/Conductor for the Phantom Regiment Drum and Bugle Corps for the summer of 2019.
Upon returning from her first summer of drum corps, Ms. Le began her college education at Texas A&M University-Commerce in the Fall of 2019 where she pursued a degree in music education. After her first year there, Ms. Le transferred to Texas State University where she would finish this degree in the Spring of 2023. Throughout her years at university, Ms. Le performed with the Texas State Bobcat Marching Band, where she served as a Drum Major her junior year. Ms. Le also performed with the Texas State Symphonic Band, Wind Symphony, and Clarinet Choir before student teaching and graduating in her last semester.
During the summers of 2020-2022, Ms. Le also continued her time as a Drum Major/Conductor for the Phantom Regiment Drum and Bugle Corps, where she served as Head Drum Major/Conductor for her final summer with the organization. From these experiences, Ms. Le uses her knowledge of the marching arts, peer leadership of large organizations, and marching band music to help high school marching programs as a drum major clinician both during and between marching seasons.
At the heart of her music education philosophy, Geneva Le cites the importance of using music as a tool to create more empathetic, communicative, and insightful individuals. Ms. Le hopes to work with and positively influence band students of all experience levels, backgrounds, and circumstances to see music as both a beautiful form of expression and a necessary communal experience.
