I hope this message finds you well and enjoying the end of your semester!
My name is Michael Weber, and I am the newly appointed Brass Caption Head for Compass Drum and Bugle Corps. I am writing today to extend an invitation to your students for an exciting opportunity this summer. Compass Drum and Bugle Corps has auditioned spots currently available in its Brass Section!
Based in the Houston area, we are proud to bridge the excellence of high school band programs like yours with the spirit of “the great state of Texas” and the competition and distinction of DCI (Drum Corps International.) As a fellow music educator, I know how challenging this year has been for many students and educators. (I taught my own students through remote instruction for this past school year.) That’s why we are elated to be able to offer a safe and in-person experience for students.
As Brass Caption Head, I am recruiting a high-caliber staff with decades of music education experience. Their diverse backgrounds and expertise will create an enriching and excellent summer program for your students. As a team, we are committed to ensuring your students learn in a safe and healthy environment while challenging and supporting them to grow in their musicianship, leadership, and independence. We focus on reinforcing fundamental techniques while developing their sound and performance ability, so they return to your program with a refined skill set and an expanded passion for the musical arts.
In regards to tuition, Compass has scholarships, fundraising opportunities, and payment plans available. We are keeping the financial hardships many families experienced this year at the forefront of our plans, and we are doing everything possible to help students find a way to march. Tuition this season is set at $2,000 (all-inclusive). As a Corps, we are being extremely flexible with payments on this amount. If you have a student who is interested but may have financial concerns, please do not hesitate to have them audition. Ultimately, we are working with students one on one who are unable to meet the tuition amount. Our goal is to give ALL students the opportunity to join an organization that will add exceptional value to their learning and growth.
I hope you will consider recommending this fantastic opportunity to your students. If you’re available for a phone call or video chat to discuss, I would love to connect. Please feel free to reach out to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
