How To Fill Up A Band Room

I had the piano at my grandmother’s house in my early years peaking my interest and waking up my talents, and sang constantly at home and at church, but was introduced to various musical band instruments in WNY schools in 5th grade at Panama School.

Which grade were you asked to choose an instrument? Please select from our poll below!

As a result of this introduction and encouragement to pick an instrument, our school bands throughout Chautauqua County were huge! Is it possible that band room sizes in certain areas across the United States are diminishing as a result to a change in how we introduce instruments to students? Are we not giving them the option to choose an instrument based off their interests?

It is already known that school budget cuts and state standards for education have drastically lowered the number of students who are able to take band, orchestra or chorus. But the community can step up and fill in that void before something detrimental is lost. Musical knowledge! It only takes 2 to 3 uneducated generations to lose something as important as music knowledge and music history.

My mother was a single parent, but was able to rent to own my instrument for me. It took a combination of parental guidance, school influence, and community support to help me find that direction and develop my talent.

Don’t stop introducing musical instruments to your children! Flutes, Trumpets, Tuba’s, Baritones, Trombones, Xylophones, Clarinets, Saxophones, Oboe’s, Violins, Bass Cello, Viola’s, Cello’s, etc.. etc.. They are not obsolete.
Music education at an early age is so important. This is why we are here! Teacher’s we can help you achieve your goals. Students: If you need help with learning an instrument, help with music theory, guidance on a career path, and much more… We can help you with that as well!
Call us to set up a time to talk about your future in music. Our first teachers set us on this path, we can help you (or your child) with yours(theirs)!

Sincerely,
April Glarner
Administrator for The Music Conservatory, LLC in Warren, PA

We Are The Fruit Of Our Teachers

Many of The Music Conservatory teachers have been taught by the music teachers in our local public and private schools here in the Warren County School District, the neighboring communities and in Western New York.  As it was our teacher’s duty and profession to teach, guide and release their students(us) with the knowledge they have passed on, so it is now our turn to give back to the community. What we are working so hard to build is in fact the fruit of our own teachers dedication to their students.

We want nothing more than to make our teachers proud and show them that we listened to them, that we are now doing what they worked so hard to achieve in us, as their students. Teachers, past and present, We hope to make you proud as we pass the torch to the next generations of teachers and musicians.

 

Dear Teachers,

Thank you for all the hard work and dedication you have shown us!

The Music Conservatory is a promise to you that music in this area will always have a place in the heart of Warren County and there will always be teachers as dedicated as you are to giving your students a quality music education.  We are excited to put what you taught us into fruition.  This is ALL because of you!

Now it’s our turn to give back!

Thank you!

The teachers of The Music Conservatory
