The Music Boosters are parents of Oak Crest music students who are working to support Oak Crest’s music programs – Beginning Band, Symphonic/Advanced Band, and the Jazz Band. We are the primary source of funding for the music programs. We raise money each year to pay for music coaches, instruments, repairs, and performance expenses, and we strive to ensure that all students are able to participate in all activities. Please support our student musicians by donating to the foundation. Working closely with the Music Director, we coordinate the organization and support oF NUMEROUS music events and performances throughout the school year. Our Music Boosters Board meets monthly and we welcome you to join us!
Whether your student will be playing an instrument for the very first time, or is already an experienced musician, Oak Crest Music will provide opportunities for your student to nourish his or her love of music. We have a great year planned for our Symphonic Band, Beginning Band and after-school Jazz Band students! The operating costs for the Music Program this year are estimated at $15,000. The majority of this expense goes to coaches who work with our student musicians to help them develop their skills, as well as for curriculum, sheet music and maintenance/purchase of equipment.
Although we seek additional resources through grant opportunities when available, our band families are the primary source of funding to make the program a success. Recommended donation for Symphonic Band and Beginning BAnd is $250 per student, and $150 for Jazz Band students.
