Welcome to the Nicolet High School Orchestra!
My name is Jamin Hoffman (my first name is pronounced "JAY-min" - simpler than it looks!). I have been the orchestra director at Nicolet since the fall of 2002. You can reach me at my office phone number (414-351-8173) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The best time to reach me in my office is from 10:39-11:26 (5th hour), but please call first to make sure I am in my office and not running errands or otherwise preparing for classes.
Since I have been at Nicolet, my orchestra students and I have taken several national and international trips, including to Moscow and St. Petersburg; Vienna, Salzurg, and Munich; Disney World, Disneyland, and Universal-Orlando; and most recently to New York City, where we played at the prestigious Carnegie Hall.
I often refer to playing in orchestra as a "group activity" - my goal is to help my students to learn to play as an ensemble (the French word for "group"), which means learning how to anticipate, hear, and react to what everyone else in the ensemble is doing - much like any sports team on a field.
