A Message from the Directors PDF Print E-mail

“You have to apply yourself each day to become a little better.  By applying yourself to the task of becoming a little better each and every day over a period of time, you will become a lot better.  Only then will you be able to approach being the best you can be.”  - John Wooden


 Welcome to another year with CHS Music!


We have an incredible year of great music-making ahead of us and we are both looking forward to working with all of you.

We as your teachers, guides, and musical partners, deeply believe in those words of John Wooden, the legendary leader of the UCLA basketball dynasty.  In order to reach your goals, you have to work consistently on those elements that will help get you there.  As true in music as it is in life!  In music, we all need to build our technique, strengthen our musicianship (ears) and fundamentals, positively contribute to our ensembles, and connect to our ability to express the music and ourselves.  Keep in mind that progress in music often takes the shape of a zig-zag rather than a straight line towards mastery. Have patience with yourself and your peers as you develop the habits that make you a better musician!!

This year will be filled with great performances, trips, a lot of laughter & smiles, maybe a few stern looks (as well as some pushing and prodding), and many hours passed in sharing the work of learning and making music together.  Some groups will be traveling to Boston to share their music with that great city, others will entertain closer to home in the black box theater and on the main stage of our incredible PAEC.  In addition, our Student Leadership Symposium will embark on its inaugural year as we work to develop our student leaders.  

Join us on Sunday, October 25, for our 4th Annual CHS Music 5K/10K Run-Walk.  This is our first BIG event of the year, and is a professionally timed race starting and ending at the CHS track, with great music along the course, cash prizes, medals and more!!  Click on the following video link for a view of last year's event.

Also you can check out more details of the Run-Walk on our Blog, and on our Fundraiser pages.

Lastly, we have two exciting curricular additions to our program this year:  a 7th period A Cappella class, and Guitar II.   

Here’s to a great year together!

Mr. Barroll & Mr. Kohen
