My Students

The students in our band are talented, creative, and use music to express themselves. We play a variety of music that focuses on our diverse population, movie and popular music, and classic band literature. Our band is open to any students grades 6-8 that would like to try an instrument. Over 1/3 of the student body plays in our ensembles.

The band program at our school allows students from different cultures, economic levels, and languages to come together and make music - the universal language.

My Project

CHMS needs two kinds of stands. A tuba stand will help growing arms, hands, and bodies hold their tubas safely and securely without having to balance it on their chairs. The other stand is one to hold music. Many of our current stands are broken, lean, fall over when music is placed on it, or can't be adjusted to the correct height. It's discouraging to not be able to see your music or hold your instrument properly.

Tuba and music stands could help our students be more confident, keep instruments and music safe, and help bring us to a new level of success!
