The JS Waters Band consists of beginning 6th grade students as well as returning 7th and 8th grade students. Each grade meets 4 times a week as part of the electives in their school curriculum.Band students may participate in several concerts each year. Some concerts may be in combination with other local schools or as part of an all county event. Band students have also participated by marching in a Christmas Parade as well as attending a field trip to visit a college music department. Band members were part of the audience listening to a college band rehearsal during their field trip.
Being involved in Band provides an opportunity for students to become proficient in learning an instrument as well as being part of a group working together to make music. This is a life long skill that can be used not only in their upcoming high school career but as they move forward past high school.
Students may join Band beginning in the 6th grade as a new player. Transfer students may join at any time. Please feel free to contact Kevin Crumley, Band Director, for questions.
