“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.”

Dear Parents and CHS Music Students,

 

We hope you have all had a relaxing and enjoyable summer. We have yet another very exciting year planned for the 2016-17 school year. We will once again be having our LVUSD Music Festivals for Band, Orchestra, and Choir with all schools in the district participating. Our Wind Ensemble will be traveling to Nashville in the spring to compete in a Heritage Festival of Gold. We also have many exciting performance opportunities for all of our groups scheduled throughout the school year. Also new this year, we will be hosting the Los Angeles A Cappella Festival on our campus. This festival attracts the top collegiate and professional groups from all over the country. We are very excited to be hosting at CHS for the first time.

 

We also have some very exciting news with regards to our teaching staff. We are so pleased to announce that one of our CHS Music Alumni has been hired to come back and join our team as a teacher. Michael Dabach was the lead trumpet in our Jazz A Band and Wind Ensemble during his time in high school. He then went to college in Philadelphia at University of the Arts where he earned both a Bachelors and Master’s Degree. He has been teaching middle school in southern California for the past couple of years. He will be teaching both on the CHS and AC Stelle campuses. He will be teaching beginning guitar, one of our concert bands, and working with our Wind Ensemble too. We are very excited to have him join our team.

 

Let's make 2016-17 one of our best years ever,

 

Joshua Barroll and Aaron Kohen
