It is my belief that all students should be given the opportunity to develop as professional musicians. Beginning band students are given the fundamentals to perform as individualized musicians. It is my goal that any low brass or brass students in the COCISD band program be independent and confident musicians. In the concert band setting, individualized students are combined into a performing ensemble where each of their individual skills is combined into a larger musical process. While in concert band, students are expected to take the skills they developed in beginner band to create a larger musical product where they cooperate with other individuals for the sole purpose of creating a quality musical product.
