When you give, you make possible Monte Vista High School’s vibrant Instrumental Music Programs and award-winning ensembles that teach students musicianship, self-discipline, and the value of teamwork, and which give students deep connections to the school and to each other.
All expenses for the Instrumental Music Program, except for director Mr. Cloyd's salary, are paid for by parents like you through the Keynoters booster group.
Your donation pays for:
Sheet music, equipment and supplies
Coaches and clinicians, so your child can benefit from learning in smaller, focused groups
Buses and truck rental to take students to competitions and events
Competition and event application and entrance fees
Instrument purchase, rentals and repairs, so every child who wants to play an instrument can do so, regardless of economic situation
Each class donation request is based upon individual program costs. If your student is taking more than one class, see **NOTE below:
Jazz A - $700
Jazz B - $500
Marching Band or Color Guard - $850
Orchestra - $300
Symphonic Band - $200
Wind Ensemble - $350
-$200 - Multi-Program discount: For students participating in TWO programs
**NOTE: If your student is taking 2 classes, we are offering a $200 discount off the total donation request. For example, if your student is taking Marching Band and Wind Ensemble, the suggested donation would be $850 + $350 - $200 = $1,000.
If you are unable to donate the full cost, any donation is encouraged and appreciated.
Thank you for your support of the Instrumental Music Program.
