When the top band was selected to perform at the Jazz Education Network Conference in Louisville, Haley was given the opportunity to help select their performances. His father drew on his great saxophone playing, and the others chose their instruments to complement other family members and find their musical passion.
He was on the staff of the Cougar Marching Band when they played in their first national title game and played against the Indianapolis Colts in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium. In addition to these numerous opportunities to perform, Haley was selected as the undergraduate staff for the "Marching Hundred," where he rehearsed, led and mentored the first-year members at band camps, rehearsals and daily sections. He received a scholarship to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's College of Arts and Sciences, where he earned his bachelor's degree in music education with his colleagues. Haley also served in the U.S. Army and Air Force National Guard.
He has received a number of scholarships that provide a basis for further opportunities, as well as a scholarship from the University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign's School of Music.
After studying music at Elmhurst College, he taught the local high school Drumline and led them to great performances and competitions. Before moving to Vernon Hills, Sundell worked at the University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign's School of Music. He worked with orchestra students in grades 4-8 and taught in the music department of the Illinois State High School Orchestra for four years. Green has expanded the program from 46 to 154 students, while tripling the number of students in his orchestra program at Vernon Hill High. Before that, he was a teacher with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Chicago Public Schools' Chamber Orchestra.
He inspires his students by connecting with their musical vision and showing them the possibilities they have in an ever-changing world.
He involves his students in stories about the exercises and performances of his band and shows them photos of drum solos played during their many performances. He connects them all by creating analogies so that students use images to understand the concepts of music and to inspire their efforts. This works, he says, because students stretch as they explore the new sonic terrain that music takes away from them.
Mr. Green is also Suzuki certified and studying rehearsal technology at the International Association of Suzuki Music Teachers (IAM) and is also Suzuki certified. He has mastered and supported the development of guitar, bass and ukulele and is also the director of the performance practice for string quartets, where he works with students in ensembles.
He teaches students of all ages at Vernon Hills High School Music Academy in Vernon Hill, Illinois. Finally he gives his own music courses, in which he teaches and learns different composers and musical styles, discussing the history of classical music in the USA and music in Europe.
His goal as a teacher is to inspire his students to play the piano and to provide them with a learning experience by creating a playful environment.
