My name is Mr. Harry Bower. I will be your band teacher this year if you go to Jamison, Pine Run, Warwick or Gayman. I am looking forward to working with all of the great students and families at all of these schools. This is my 31st year teaching at CB and I have been Band Director at CB East, Unami and, for the last 7 years, Jamison and Pine Run Band. Prior to coming to CB I taught one year at Hedgepeth-Williams Middle School in Trenton, NJ. I am a graduate of The College of New Jersey with further studies at the University of The Arts in Philadelphia. I mainly play the trumpet and have played with many wedding, dance, concert and parade bands and orchestras for over 40 years. I am an original member of the CB Save The Music Concert, now going on 20 years and which has raised over $300,000 to provide instruments for schools in need. I love all kinds of music and love seeing kids excited about music and inspiring them to perform the best they can.I am married to Mrs. Bower and have a 14 year old daughter, Samantha, and a 13 year old son, Jesse. I also like sports and my favorite teams are the Eagles and Phillies.More information about the band and what is going on in class will be posted here very soon, so please check back frequently. So let's have some fun and join the band!
