Woodland Poly adding music program; to have Big Kenny of Big & Rich and Troy Luccketta of Tesla visit students
Woodland Polytechnic Academy will start a music program this fall with two musicians appearing on campus in the coming months. The music program is still under development but the school is accepting applications for music teachers, according to a news release Friday. The music program, part of Woodland Poly’s Arts and Media Academy, will enhance an overall fine arts program with additional drama and art activities.
When the music program starts in the fall, the charter school will open to seniors for its second year. The school also accepts independent study students and students who need additional coursework to graduate.
Before the program begins, professional musicians Big Kenny of Big & Rich and Troy Luccketta of Tesla will speak to students this spring about achieving their dreams and will discuss how their life goals have led to their personal and professional success.
Exact dates are pending for the musicians’ appearances at school rallies but both have committed to speak to students before the school year ends in June.
“While we have all been big fans of Big Kenny and Troy, it’s an honor to know that they’re also big fans of our school and our students,” said Steve Marks, Jr., Woodland Poly Executive Director in a news release. “A part of believing your dreams can come true is hearing from the people who have worked so hard to reach their goals. We are incredibly grateful to have musicians of this caliber share their tips for success with our students.”
