My Students

Here at CHS, we have an amazing group of students that form our string orchestra! All of the students are eager to learn and grow in their skills with string instruments and music overall. With the current groups we are able to challenge students at all level from beginners up to mastery level performance!

These students are passionate about music and strongly wish to share that passions first with their community and also the entire world!

They spend countless hours of their personal time working to make this orchestra better and also be sure that it uphold an amazing level of performance. They deserve every bit of time and effort to help them reach their goals.

My Project

We are in much need of new bows and mutes for instruments. Most of the bows currently being used by students are more than 15 years old and have not been rehaired or replaced. It is definitely time to start getting some new supplies that will be easier for the students to use and help with their overall sound.

We are planning to play a couple of pieces this year that require extended bowing techniques and instrument mutes.

When looking into our supplies and storage we discovered that we had no extra mutes and plenty of students that did not have them in their instrument case.
