My Students

Our music department is booming - we're at a point where all of our classes are literally overflowing with a diversity of students. Students range from complete beginners with no previous experience, to students playing since a young age, to those in top honors ensembles.

Regardless of experience, what makes our music students stand out is their hunger and thirst for new experiences.

Students can choose from a variety of classes including: Keyboard, Guitar, Beginning Band, Beginning Strings, Advanced Band (Marching and Concert Band), Chorus, Chamber Choir, and AP Music Theory. Other extra-curricular groups include: Pep Band, Jazz Ensemble, and Mariachi.

My Project

In the general classroom setting, a teacher can ask for additional desks or chairs if there is not enough for their students. However, that isn't the case for music classes.

Music Stands are the 'desks' in a music classroom.

It's great that our music classes are growing, but we need the proper equipment to accommodate these growing numbers. Many of our students share stands on a daily basis, which is not conducive to the learning process, especially to our beginning students.

Please keep an eye out for Part II, where we plan to cover more stands, as well as get a storage cart for the new welcomed equipment in the classroom.
