All State Music

TMEA released the 2020-2021 All-State music last week. Auditions (Region and Area) will be conducted via video submission upload. More details to come as TMEA finalizes the process. TMEA also announced the new All-State Percussion Ensemble for the 2021 TMEA convention. This means they will take more percussionists from Area auditions to fill the All-State Bands, Orchestras, and the new Percussion Ensemble. Obtaining a spot in the Texas All-State Ensembles can lead to scholarship money regardless of college major.

CHS Band has traditionally used this music as a big part of our fall curriculum with weekly testing. Test scores were then averaged to determine concert band placements. At this time, the director team has decided to make this music optional enrichment for the fall semester. For more information about the All-State process, click on the YouTube link below and skip to 23:42.

20-21 Private Lessons

Our private lesson staff continue to teach via skype, facetime, or online lessons. These lessons will need to be set up directly with the private teacher.

Please understand that lessons are the sole source of income for many of our teachers. We know these are difficult times, but if you can continue your lessons it would greatly help our extended regiment family.

If you are NOT in lessons and would like to be, it’s not too late to join! This would be a GREAT way to keep your student continually learning and having fun while school is out. Please complete the attached google form to sign up and we will put you in contact with one of our private lessons teachers.


WGI World Championship Refund UPDATE 7/17/20 

All checks have been sent. Everyone (Guard & Drumline) should have received an email from Mr. Klein with refund details. Please reply to the email if you find this to be an error. Please DO NOT create a new email. It makes it difficult to track confirmations. 

That's all for now! Thank you for your patience as we work through everything. We hope your family is staying safe and healthy. Hope to see you soon. WE MISS YOU!!!

Mr. Klein
