  • Sarah Moulder is the director of Bands and Orchestras at Ravenswood Middle School in East Palo Alto, California. Ms. Moulder has spent a decade striving to provide a quality musical experience to students in Title I Schools. Originally from Michigan, she holds a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from Northern Michigan University, and a Master's Degree in Wind Band Conducting from the American Band College. An active freelance musician, Ms. Moulder enjoys playing regularly throughout California's culturally rich Bay Area in pit orchestras, big bands, and the San Francisco Wind Symphony. Ms. Moulder created a band and orchestra program from the ground up in one of the most economically disadvantaged communities in the state of California. While her program started with merely one band ensemble at one school, it has grown to include three separate leveled bands and two orchestras at two schools. Ms. Moulder provides free and equal access to all students who wish to participate.
