FROM WEST HIGH SCHOOL – As a Freshman at West High School, your student has the opportunity to do what so many successful students have done before them, Be Part of the Band!
At West High School, we want to make your transition to high school as easy as we can. Band Director, Rodney Brown says being part of the band is being part of a family, and that is what band is all about. “We work hard, but then turn around and play hard as well.”
Music education is more than just playing an instrument. It is immersing your student in a culture of successful students and teachers who care about education. It challenges each student to use the creative side of his brain while, at the same time, learning a foreign language…MUSIC.
All of the current data clearly states that students involved in music education academically out perform their non-musical counterparts. But, more importantly, studies are showing that music students are less likely to engage in risky behaviors such as drugs and alcohol.
Embark on our journey. Now is the time to Be Part of the Band and West High School is the place to do it. We can’t promise that every student will be a musical prodigy, but we can promise they will learn, laugh, and grow along the way.
This is a time where you and your student can explore the different instruments and get help choosing the instrument that will give them the best chance of success.
Join us July 8, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm at West High School band room for Be Part of the Band Meet ‘n Greet. Should you have any questions about band or your student’s participation, please feel free to contact Rodney Brown, Band Director, firstname.lastname@example.org
