My Students

Our school is a public four-year high school with a wide range of students from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. Approximately 35-40% of our student body participates in fine arts on some level. Offering our music students the chance to succeed is my top priority. We strive daily to make opportunities available for our high school students to further their musical skills and expand their horizons. Students attending our school have earned recognition at the district, state, regional, and national level. We have alumni working on Broadway, teaching college and public school music, and performing as professionals all over the world. Our music department has a 100+ year history of excellence, and we try every day to live up to that legacy. We offer jazz band, two levels of string orchestra, and concert band, pep band, and marching band. We also have strong choral, guitar, drama, and fine arts programs.

My Project

Our school jazz band and pep band programs have lately taken on the challenge of adding more guitar-heavy literature. For us to be able to pull this off correctly, we need the correct tools to give our students the opportunity by providing the proper equipment. The BOSS Stompbox and Pedalboard will provide the pinpoint visual reference and verification needed to produce every sound from screaming loud to whisper soft: It's the kind of instrument pedal tuner that no performing guitarist or bass player should be without. Your help in acquiring this wonderful resource would be an immense shot in the arm for our program!
