Alan Ett is an accomplished musician with a Masters in Music from the New England Conservatory of Music, and has composed scores for thousands of television shows beginning with “Who’s The Boss” and “Married With Children” to “Modern Marvels” and Forensic Files.”
“The Music Teacher was an amazing opportunity to create a show with a vitally important message about the importance of our teachers to us both individually and as a culture,” says Alan. He continues, “The musical challenges were immense as we created a full on Broadway style musical as well as scoring the movie and I congratulate the incredibly talented group of people who worked on this with me. I believe we succeeded to the highest artistic levels in all areas. A rare opportunity to do a rare project."
About “The Music Teacher”
In Kansas City, Alyson Daley (Potts) is a high school music teacher whose after school program has taught dozens of students how to sing while gaining confidence to build bright futures. Alyson has dedicated herself to changing her student’s lives for the better, a mission she began sixteen years ago when a tragic accident caused the deaths of her husband and son. Mourning the loss alone, Alyson used the program as distraction, but is now devastated again when district budget cuts threaten to cancel the program for good. Hearing the news, her first class of student decided to reunite to put on a show-stopping musical to raise money and keep the program album. Now adults, the cast and former friends look back on the lessons they learned as troubled high school student from Ms. Daley. As they rehearse, they begin to form new bonds – and repair old ones – just in time for opening night, and give their beloved teacher renewed strength to heal her heart.
