5-8 BAND Students…

Hello BAND students!

Here are links to recordings of the pieces that the 5/6 and 7/8 Bands are preparing for the Spring Concert on May 27th, 2015. Practice along with them for that awesome experience of playing with a FULL band! – Mr. Ellis

No Jazz Band Tonight

I am temporarily stranded out of town (in Dover Foxcroft).  Therefore, there will NOT be Jazz Band after school today (Monday, March 16th).

Instead of rehearsal, I am asking that EVERYONE practice their Jazz Band music for at least 45 minutes tonight. After you practice, fill out this form: Practice Fulfillment Form

See you Tuesday morning! Be ready to play at 7:30 sharp.
