My Students

Music is a path that opens up doors for both the students who play it and the audiences who listen to it. And my students are very, very eager to keep opening those doors. They play jazz, rock, classical, and everything in between. Anything we throw at them, they play. They are a devoted group of individuals who play hard while having lots of fun!

In the past seven years, we are fortunate to have grown from a band of 18 to a band of 115.

In addition to marching band, we offer choir, concert band, symphonic band, two jazz bands, jazz combos, drumline, color guard, and other small groups. We perform for many festivals and events at school and in our community, as well as all over the state.

My Project

There are few instruments as glorious and beautiful as the French Horn. And at the same time, there are few instruments as challenging to play as the French Horn. Fortunately, in our band, we have several talented Horn players. Unfortunately, we have a lack of quality instruments for these students to play.

With your help, we will purchase a new French Horn so students will be able to perform at their top level, sounding great while they do it.

This instrument will help fill out our horn section, making our entire band sound better, and making a more enjoyable performance and experience for all. Furthermore, it will last a very long time, giving many students years of playing music!
