Peak to Peak Charter SchoolPeak to Peak Charter School in Lafayette, Colorado, is the first school this year to be designated a Conn-Selmer All-American School. The Conn-Selmer All American School program recognizes outstanding instrumental programs in American schools with a special relationship that assists the school in owning new, quality instruments to improve the music making experience for their students.
"By utilizing an in-kind grant from Conn-Selmer Inc., Peak to Peak Charter School was able to purchase a wide range of new instruments to enhance the school owned inventory," said Grant Johnston, Administrator for the Division of Education at Conn-Selmer. "Our All-American School program assists in providing resources for students to learn superior skills and be better prepared for success in music." The six year program supports the school as a leader in music and music education, also extending scholarship and educational opportunities to students and faculty.
"I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with Conn-Selmer in providing much needed instruments to our school. I am equally excited that we have now become an All-American School and have begun a very positive relationship that will keep music alive in my school," says Adam Spicer, Band Director at the school. "I can now provide quality instruments to very deserving students that love music and in turn keep students passions alive and growing in our bands. With our new partnership with Conn-Selmer under this program, I am excited about the future of our music program and will continue to purchase instruments from Conn-Selmer as our music program grows."
