My Students

Our scholars are a mix of beginning and intermediate level band students, who range from grades 8-11. Students in our urban, Title One, college preparatory school go to class for eight and a half hours daily. Most stay after school for extra-curricular offerings and show up on Saturdays for voluntary tutoring as well.

Our band program is only in its second year, but our students are very passionate about learning music.

Our band students are constantly working towards performing for their school and community. They perform during school assemblies, lunches, after-school concerts, and various community events such as charity races.

My Project

We are seeking new music, specifically a variety of solo repertoire and method books for various instruments. With these books, students will be exposed to a wider variety of music. Using solos is a great way to personalize each student’s curriculum, ensuring that each student is receiving material that will help support their individual areas of growth.

As our program grows, hundreds of students will use and benefit from these materials, year after year.

These resources are also used as audition material for several local competitive ensembles. Having access to them will grant students the opportunity to participate in auditions where they can showcase all of their hard work and talent.
