Great teacher who knows a lot about music, especially musicianship. He's very clear about his intentions about Marching Band and Wind Symphony. He's always available for help when you need it most. However he can go about crazy at times but he's mostly hilarious and always says gurrlll.

I've been in the Marching Band, Wind Symphony, and Winter Drumline all 4 years here at CHS. Trost does demand a lot from his band members, especially in Wind Symphony. Make sure you're focused, prepared, and ready, and you will succeed. The trips you take in Wind Symphony have been super fun (I got to go to London during the 2012 Summer Olympics and perform at Olympic Park, and then I got to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York last year. This year we're going to Disney World in Florida).

He definitely knows what he's talking about with the music. Practice can be intense at times...because he demands so much of us. I guess thats why we go to many cool places. Just show you're interested and you should be o.k. in class.

He understands and makes decisions (sometimes may not always be the popular one) based on what's best for us. I've never seen a teacher work as hard as he does. He's always at school and is trying to find ways to give us opp
