SJH Wind Ensemble on the news!

Providing this experience is expensive, and we are asking for your help! The band will need the community’s support to raise money to help cover costs to attend the National Concert Band Festival. It will take a village to make this all happen! We could not engage in this wonderful learning opportunity and experience for the students in the SJH Wind Ensemble without your support!

The SJH Wind Ensemble, along with band leaders and parents, kindly request your support to help complete their journey to represent Stockdick Junior High, Katy ISD, and the entire Katy community March 12-14, 2020 at the Music for All National Concert Band Festival in Indianapolis, IN.

Please share the link and video below to help get these students to Indianapolis!

STUDENT ABSENCES:

All events scheduled on the Charms Band Calendar are mandatory for the success of the organization. If any student has a medical appointment or life event that is unavoidable - please e-mail one of the Director staff as soon as possible!

Students who miss rehearsal can fall behind extremely fast. We want each and every student to be as successful as possible, and have the best most positive experience! We structure and tier our instruction to build from day to day, and unexpected absences can have a massive effect on not just your child when they miss the rehearsal and instruction, but the ensemble as a whole.

We kindly request that you do your best to avoid conflicts with rehearsal times. We operate as efficiently and effectively as possible to prepare for our competitive season when every student is present and contributing to the ensemble success! Thank you!

Private Lessons!

All Paetow High School and Stockdick Junior High band students are highly encouraged to enroll in private lessons. Private lessons offer your child a unique experience that he or she cannot receive in a regular classroom setting. Private lessons are geared toward helping your son or daughter become a truly great musician with incredibly individualized instruction! Private lessons are a wonderful resource that can contribute an enormous amount to a student’s musical success!

Private Lesson Facts to consider:

  • OVER 95% of the student musicians that earn placement within bands at Region, Area, and All-State take private lessons!
  • Each student in the Band has the opportunity to study privately with a professional musician in our private lessons program!
  • Taking private lessons has a direct connection to a student’s success!
  • Enrollment in private lessons is a SIGNIFICANT predictor of a student’s success in music!
