Chiyo Trauernicht is the band teacher at Blair Otte Middle School. Since she came to Blair, the marching band is remarkable. She goes above and beyond her duties.

She helped my son numerous times after school to better his ability to play baritone. She assisted him in his confidence level. Because of her extra help, he became a member of the middle and high school jazz band. She assisted him and his duet partner with their music in the Elkhorn High School Band Olympics. She even came to the Olympics on her own time to give them moral support.

Chiyo puts her heart into her teaching and her students.
