1. SHOULD MUSICIANS BRING THEIR INSTRUMENTS ON THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL? No. The first day is usually spent getting acquainted and finding out what Maestro Johnson expects of his troops. There is no jazz band on the first day of school.
2. IS THERE SOMEWHERE SAFE TO STASH INSTRUMENTS? Yes, the band room has musical instrument lockers, which students share. You will need a combination lock.
3. WHAT IS THE STUDENT MUSIC COUNCIL? Students are represented by an elected student music council, which helps organize social activities, the Welcome Back BBQ for new and returning students, Pep Band gigs, and other events, including this fall’s outing to the Lesher Center for a multimedia concert, and a movie night in the bandroom. Elections are held each spring, and the concert band elects its representative in the fall. To see a list of this year’s officers, click the “About Campo Music” tab at the top of the page.

Art has the power to help students understand and shape the world. However, arts education in America’s schools, colleges and universities is facing an escalating crisis which, if not dealt with soon, will deepen in both intensity and gravity. It will continue to directly and adversely affect the quality of education available to our students and the well-being of our nation.
To reverse this trend, the College Board established the National Task Force on the Arts in Education (NTFAE) to address the opportunities and challenges facing arts education in the United States. The College Board is committed to making the arts accessible to all students.
