MMI Preparatory School freshman trombone player Aaron Harman recently participated in the Pennsylvania Music Education Association’s (PMEA) District 9 Jazz Festival.
Students in grades 9-12 spent the first day of the two-day event in rehearsal at Forest City High School and performed the following evening at The Scranton Cultural Center. The PMEA’s District 9 is comprised of schools in Wayne, Susquehanna, Wyoming, Lackawanna, and Luzerne counties.
Harman, the son of Ronald and Yvonne Harman of Drums, took part in the inaugural PMEA District 9 Ninth Grade Honors Band at Marywood University last December.
PMEA promotes and supports quality music education, learning and performance in schools and communities. Its mission is to advance comprehensive and innovative music education for all teachers and students through quality teaching, rigorous learning, and meaningful music engagement.
