Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Denise Forbes

I have a performance- rich career as a bassoonist and vocalist. I am proud to share that I graduated for the Manhattan School of Music and even worked at the Juilliard School. I have two sons who are terrifically dynamic and very intelligent. I am a life- long learner and I am constantly evolving as a mother, musician, and teacher.


Why I am excited about our theme, Environmental and Community Connection...

I like considering all contributing factors when surveying and creating music. Our theme reinforces this practice in my class.


Why I teach...

I enjoy shepherding young musicians through the performance process.
