Kern LITTLE ROCK CORRESPONDENT Initiated late last year by a mother who sought a greater musical challenge for her three grade-school children, the Catholic Junior High School Band will hold its first concert on Sunday, May 10. That day is Mother's Day, and the performance will be especially meaning- ful for Ellen Serven of North Little Rock, a parishioner of St. Patrick Church and the mother of a clarinetist, a trumpeter and a drummer in the band. Ellen and Alan Serven's oldest children, Christopher, 13, a seventh grade trum- peter, and Barbara, 12, a sixth grade clari- net player, both St. Patrick School stu- dents, had been studying music for sev- eral years, They needed something more stimulating than lessons, Serven said. Their son Michael, 9, a fourth grader at the North Little Rock Catholic elemen- tary school, is following the family musi- cal tradition and plays drums. Serven's interest caught the ittention of Bryan Deaver, 26, of Conway, a gradu- ate student in music education at' the University of Central Arkansas. With Deaver in place as banddirec- tor, she sent out parochial schools, called families and set up a par- ents' meeting. Seeing the junior high band as a way of developing youngsters for their music programs, music teach- ers at Mount St. Mary Academy and Little Rock Catholic High provided facilities for practices. The fledgling band started practicing in January twice a week at Mount St. Mary and later moved to larger facilities at Catholic High School. The junior high band, made up of students from the Greater Little Rock Thirteen-year-old Eric Robinson, an Our Lady of the Holy Souls seventh grade says he aspires to play the trombone in the Catholic High School band, whoa facilities the Catholic Junior High School Band uses for practice. area, will debut on a program with the Catholic High Band at 2 p.m. in the school auditorium. 'I hope it becomes larger and s6me- thing kids want to do and that schools support it," Serven said. She hopes a registration drive starting early in May at nine Catholic elementary schools will swell band membership. The band has 15 members, and Deaver has a goal of at least 40 mem- bers, including sections for beginner and advanced musicians. Both sections would form what he calls the "pizzazz" band, which would play at Catholic junior high football games. ing to students about the band. Several studies have shown that rn a education improves children's math #u verbal skills. A published report in November that St. Augustine School, a lic school in the South Bronx in o ae the nation's poorest net found that its students with four' music and the arts scored 34 higher on the verbal Stanford ment Test and 18 points better on math portion than students who music for less than one year. '1 love music and want to teach kids how to play and enjoy it to new experiences to them," Deaver, a Morrilton High graduate, has been involved in since the second grade. He is first in trombone with the UCA semble. He has the UCA low brass section tubas, baritones, trombones and saxophones. He has assisted Morrilton High marching band the summer.
