My Students

Our students are some of the best kids on campus. They are dedicated and loyal and are the heart of the school. From the fight songs on the first day of school, to the drum line at Homecoming, the band is what everyone at the school has come to expect. Our school is growing every year, and we take a lot of pride in what we do.

The band members know that they are the representatives not only of our school, but our community as well.

They provide community services at many of our city's events including our Independence Day parade and Veteran’s Day jazz concerts for our honored servicemen and women. The school has been open for well over a decade now, and lately equipment is starting to fall apart. With the necessary items such as this, we can keep our band program in “working order” for years to come.

My Project

With the ongoing quarantine due to the global pandemic, our students are faced with new challenges. Access to large keyboard style instruments is nearly impossible due to cost and logistics of moving a large instrument into a home.

Utilizing technology, this tool allows students to continue to develop their musicianship with minimal impact to their home environment, where many parents are now working from home.

This tool is also a huge opportunity for our students to gain insight to an ever growing musical technology world including composition and sound design.
