My Students

My students are lively, kind, and most of all, love music! They are excited to be a part of a band program which has supported this school since it's inception in 2003. The band program strives to epitomize the positive school culture and support the students in many ways. Our program performs at many school sports games, all pep rallies, and other school events. They also perform for their community several times a year.

My students come from all walks of life, but they all have music in common.

My school is considered 75% economically disadvantaged but also has a high number of AP scholars. My classes reflect this as well.

My Project

Our marching band has been a competitive group for a few years. Our indoor groups have worked their way to multiple championships the last few years. As we grow, we are finding that we need better sound systems to communicate. The Ion Audio Raptor will be used to project a metronome during practice and music during warm-up. The Behringer will be used by staff so that the members can hear instructions and corrections.

Music inspires students to strive for excellence.

As our groups find success, more students want to be a part of that. These sound systems will allow us to reach the students more effectively.
