My students need four new mouthpieces to maximize their potential for quality tone on their instrument.
CHS is an academically successful, rural high school that is filled to the brim with about 900 wonderful students. At our school, we serve our military community by educating students whose parents serve or work at the USMC and Naval facilities at Camp Lejeune or Cherry Point, the two Coast Guard stations, and/or Bogue Air Field. I teach many students across all grade levels in my band classes as well as after-school music and performing arts programs.
In the state's ranking system, our high-performing high school has been ranked as a top ten public high school in NC for ten consecutive years.
Through our state's report card system, we have been given an "A+" designation four years in a row.
We sustain a rich history of high-quality musical productions, receiving the highest ratings at state adjudications annually. The support we receive directly correlates to that success.
Even with our high achievement and growth, we are still striving to make an improvement. There's always something we can do to accelerate our excitement and recharge our learning.
Tone is the most important element of performing on an instrument. Quality sound on any instrument begins with the instrument's mouthpiece. Over time, as students progress on their instrument they outgrow the capabilities of their mouthpiece and to achieve their best sounds they must upgrade their mouthpiece. Some of my students do not have the necessary funds to purchase an upgraded mouthpiece.
With these four new mouthpieces, students that are unable to purchase their own upgraded mouthpiece will maximize their potential for characteristic tone on their instruments.
Each student's individual tone has a dramatic effect on the overall ability of the group to master ensemble concepts such as balance, blend, and intonation. Providing these mouthpieces will increase the maximum potential for not only the students that receive them but the other members of their section and the band as a whole.
