My Students

Our students are dedicated to each other and driven to better themselves musically and personally. They have an incredible understanding of the "bigger picture" and do a wonderful job of taking care of the equipment that we use every day, especially when the best opportunities are given to them to do so. These students are part of a well-respected band program that has a great amount of community support.

We are in a transitional period in our program, and we are looking to use that as an opportunity for growth.

My Project

Our band program has always had a strong group of leaders. Our drum majors are no exception. Our athletic bands are growing and expanding, and so are the demands placed on our drum majors. In the past, the drum majors have stood on a homemade table that's about three feet tall with no steps, rails, or easy way to move.

A new platform would provide a safe, sturdy, professional vantage point for the student conductors.

With this platform, we could move our marching band into the 21st century and add to our growing image. Members of the band will be able to clearly see the Drum Major and follow their lead, and it will inspire many of them to take ownership in the program and its equipment.
