I am the band director at C.H.S. I am blessed to work with the hardest working students in the high school. Our band program consists of marching band, varsity and junior varsity concert band, jazz band, pep band, color guard, and winter color guard.
Many students in the C.H.S.
Band use school instrument and come from diverse economic and cultural backgrounds. Most of our equipment is aging, and in poor playing condition. Although we are allocated a repair budget it is insubstantial for our needs. Wear and tear on school owned instruments and lack of yearly maintenance has expanded our need for replacements.
Both our Junior and Varsity Bands are preparing concert and contest music that requires the use of straight mutes. Most of our students can not afford mutes. In addition we have been unable to provide mutes for them.
This project we ensure the availability of mutes for this year and future years.
Having a complete set of mutes would allow us to select from are larger pool of music literature. In the past we have had to perform without mutes even though the music specifically ask for them. This has had an adverse effect on performance and performance assessment at concerts and contests.
