About the Instructors


Mr. Howell- is coming back as band director. We're all very grateful for all of his hard work and dedication to the band. Mr. Howell also teaches at the Claymont Intermediate, Junior Highschool, and the High school. We are all very grateful, because his family supports him the long hours that he pratices with us for football games each year.

Mr. Shade- has been with us for multiple years as vice Asistant and trumpet expert. He has also helped us learn many Marching Band routines. We are all very honored to have him in the Claymont Band family!

Farrah Raines- has served as the Claymont Colorguard Instructor for several years. She is a 1997 Claymont Graduate, with 5 years of marching with the Claymont Colorguard, and 3 years of Claymont winterguard. Colorguard has always been a passion of Farrah's and is very excited to be welcomed back as part of the staff working with the Claymont Marching Band. Farrah's hobbies include scrapbooking, watching movies, traveling, and spending time with loved ones.
