This is a clip of a school presentation near Glacier National Park by Jill Haley about how she composes music in and about a National Park.


She can supplement this with photos and video if this is possible from a technical end in the school.

The program can be tailored to any age group and in either an indoor or outdoor setting. 


Excerpt from a live performance during an Artist in Residency at the Perkiomen Valley Middle School. Jill was asked to write a piece based on the history of the Ancestral people from this area of PA, share it in a school assembly and then have it arranged for the school’s middle school band to perform.
