My students enter the band room with excitement to create music, develop life-long meaningful relationships with their peers, and a desire to learn. We are 120 musicians who enjoy seizing every opportunity to work hard and improve our talents.
The band classroom fosters a family environment.
I strive to create a place were all students can belong. Finding success on an instrument creates musical and life skills.
We are in a district of 660 students with 20% currently in band, and it's projected to grow!
Band students need 3 basic materials to practice and perform- an instrument in working order, music, and a stand to hold their music.
These stands will allow students the best practice and performance opportunities at Riley County Schools.
We have several performance opportunities where all students, grades 5 through 12 play together. We have 120 students total in the band program and 64 stands in a variety of working order; we simply do not have enough equipment for all students to see their music and be successful. We appreciate any and all help to make our growing band program flourish.
