Please help me in congratulating ZESHAN FAROOQ for placing in the 2020 TMEA All-State Jazz Ensemble! Zeshan finished in 4th chair, out of all the trumpets that auditioned from across the state of Texas. This places Zeshan in the top 1% of trumpet players from across the state. What a truly remarkable accomplishment! Zeshan, we are all so very proud of you!

Thanks to the Little Elm Band Boosters, EVERY BAND STUDENT at LEHS was given a one-year subscription to Smartmusic. Smartmusic is an online, interactive program that makes practice more enjoyable and fulfilling for band students. It provides a wealth of practice materials, accompaniment recordings, band recordings, etc..as well as a way for directors to provide greater feedback and performance assessment. Please be sure your child has accepted the invitation that was sent via school email and they complete the Smartmusic registration. They will enjoy having this practice resource!
