Horace W. Porter

Middle School Music

Welcome to grade 5th-8th Concert Band, Choir/General Music, & Jazz Band! 

Hello! My name is Alexis Stolarun. I am very excited to work with the middle school music students at Porter School this year! This is my 11th year teaching music, and my first year at Porter School.  A little about me...I earned my bachelor's degree in music education from Central Connecticut State University in 2007 and my main instrument is flute. I earned a masters degree in education from the University of St. Joseph with a focus in multiple intelligences and a sixth year degree in educational leadership with my administration certfication from the University of Connecticut.  I have past experiences in leading middle and high school concert bands and orchestras and I served as a high school dean of students! I am very much looking forward to meeting the students and having a great school year ahead with the students in the music department! 

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.
