My Students

My students are provided access to a multitude of opportunities to stretch, learn and grow in a rigorous, yet caring environment.

Marching Band meets daily in the fall in preparation for parades, field tournaments, football game performances, assemblies, and community performances.

Uniforms and instruments (if needed) are also provided.

Percussion Ensemble provides instruction in marching band techniques, concert literature, and participation in the other concert groups.

Wind Ensemble class enrolls the most proficient wind and brass players available. During the first semester, this class concentrates on marching band music and “pop” concert music. Sectionals are also run during this period. During the second semester, the wind ensemble performs class E-AA concert literature.

Advanced Band is for all freshmen woodwind and brass players. New members of the Entertainment Unit receive extra help on the marching band music. This class is required for all freshmen who are in the marching band. During the second semester, the advanced band continues in developing musical skills in performing class C-A concert literature.

My Project

I currently have old and broken down music stands that have seen better days. Some music stands no longer tilt correctly making it hard for students to read their music. I am asking for music stands that are long-lasting and durable. These stands are easy to tilt in any position. The music stands are light weight and can easily be moved from one place to another using one-hand. The music stand base provides great stability and requires minimum space on stage risers or in storage. The music stands are secure at any height, even with a heavy load of music.
