Proposed 2021 bond would help build a new band classroom

At Webster Middle and High School, the proposed 2021 bond package would help them build a new band classroom for the school’s student musicians. Currently, they are using a classroom that doesn’t meet the minimum space requirements and was not designed to be used for music.

“Our rehearsal space lacks any kind of acoustic treatment. In the same way that the echo of a small bathroom with tile walls makes every singer sound good, there is so much reflection and reverberation off of our walls that while the groups sound really loud, we aren’t actually hearing the true sound,” explained Webster band instructor Penny Davis. 

Penny said when the band moves to a performance space, there is a drastic change in sound quality, intonation, and balance.

“We are currently doing a lot of guesswork on how our groups actually sound,” she said.

The students and staff at Webster are excited for the way that a new band classroom will help improve their sound and performance.

The new room would allow students to have space designed specifically for music, with proper space, storage, and acoustics -- all of which are vital to growing a successful music program.

On June 8, you will have the opportunity to vote on the four propositions included in the 2021 Bond for Tulsa Public Schools. You can find more information and details on each proposition at www.tulsaschools.org/2021bond. The proposed bond package is designed to keep property taxes level.

The deadline to register to vote in the June election is Friday, May 14, and the deadline to request an absentee ballot is 5pm on Tuesday, June 1. You can find notary information here and here.
