My Students

Our Band program is currently serving approximately 275 students in grades 6th through 12th. This program serves a vital role in the school and community through music education and performance.

Not only do we all have a need for music as people, we can appreciate the art of music with more depth if we have performed in an ensemble.

The quality of the ensemble that we participate in will greatly influence our experience and perception of music through our lifetime. By providing a number of settings for students to develop both their own instrumental skill and that of an ensemble member, our Band department is striving to provide it's students with a quality music education experience dedicated to the development of basic musicianship, teamwork, camaraderie, discipline, and dedication.

Our Band students are serving as musical ambassadors for not only the school but the community in which they live. Their efforts as musicians translates to good citizenship and a strong work ethic. As growth occurs and continues, so does the program's necessary expenditures to support its students and their musical endeavors.

My Project

Currently, we only have one flugelhorn in our Elgin Band inventory. The flugelhorn is a standard member of the British-style brass band, and it is also used frequently in jazz. It also appears occasionally in orchestral and concert band music. This instrument is played like a trumpet and is required in current music being practiced on by our High School Jazz Band.

We are requesting two flugelhorns.

The purchase of these instruments would expand our students' access and their ability to play current and future literature that calls for flugelhorn to be used. Students in our jazz band, concert band, and marching band will benefit from having these instruments as a part of our school inventory.
