My Students

Our high school band is a competitive marching arts ensemble that competes on the highest level of competition.

We have earned many superior ratings as well as placing 1st at many competitions.

Our band is a member of the Music For All Program that hosts the Bands of America Marching Championships.

We are an 8th-12th-grade organization with students that work hard to excel in all areas of music at our high school.

My Project

The trip to Bands of America Grand Nationals is a life-changing and learning experience for our students.

Many of our students have never been out of Monroe County, much less out of state.

This is an exciting national competition that many of our students would never be able to experience without the help of the surrounding community.

On this trip, students will get to see bands from all over the United States and realize that they are just as capable of competing on the national level as anyone else.

We are currently raising funds in many ways to help offset the students' cost for this trip.
