"As the vocal music teacher at my son's high school, Peter was professional, energetic, encouraging and innovative. He came to the music program with ideas to expand opportunities for the students to learn and perform. He invited parent and student input and respected the ideas and talents of everyone. It was exciting to watch concerts as the students learned from Peter how to conduct themselves professionally on stage. He chose challenging pieces for the students to sing and encouraged everyone to step out of their comfort zones to perform solos and small group numbers. We miss Peter here at Lakeland High School! He will be a wonderful addition to your staff. You are fortunate to have him there. Sincerely, Kelly Dernay" Kelly Dernay wrote at Sunday, Nov. 20th 2016
Peter P. Review
"We are pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Mr. Peter P. . We have been observing Peter’s professional development over the past year, and we can state with confidence that he is a motivated and responsible person with a high degree of integrity. As such, we expect that he will be a very positive addition to any educational team. We have known Peter since he was in High School, and now, as parents of one of Peter’s students, we feel that we know Pter quite well. He began working as the Music Director at Lakeland High School in 2015. In this role, he had considerable responsibilities, and he handled them enthusiastically. Peter showed his communications skills with students, parents and the teaching staff, and due to his dedication and attention to detail, we saw improvement in concert performance quality during this period. His duties included managing regular classroom activities for students in both Lakeland High School and the International Academy West, as well as directing the Lakeland Singers, the IA Choir, and the LHS Choir, plus the occasional special performance group. Peter led the students to perform in several concerts at the LHS Theater. This provided the platform for one of Peter’s most effective teaching methods. Peter used these public performances to encourage and enable his students to play strong roles in planning these events. Students were responsible for choosing material, arranging the music and creating unique choreography. This was very well received by the students, and not only improved their understanding of the material, but increased their confidence as he allowed many of the students to perform solos, and others to include their musical instruments as integral parts of the performances. The final concert of the year, which included all of the Choirs, received a standing ovation from a packed house. Peter takes the initiative to identify problems and devise solutions. His role requires strong communication skills, and he has shown that he not only has these skills, but that he also has the ability to inspire respect and cooperation in the classroom. We would highly recommend Peter to become a member of any teaching team. He would prove to be a very valuable asset, supporting the highest standards of education.
