WELCOME TO 7TH & 8TH GRADE BAND!
MR. JOHN P. McCARTHY
Director of Bands
We are currently in a Percussion Ensemble mode for rehearsals. Students will need to bring their music and drum sticks to rehearsal. ALL STUDENTS SHOULD HAVE THEIR OWN DRUM STICKS!
You should still be hearing the students playing their band instruments at home. They must continue practicing so that we may have a Spring Concert performance this year!
(Stay Tuned For Further Details On The Concert)

Let's do this.
Welcome to the bandroom! My name is Mr. McCarthy and I have been teaching in Jackson for 30 years. My primary instrument is Trumpet, and I do like to play the piano. I love teaching students about music, and I have very high expectations for my ensembles. Band can be fun, when you put the work into it. You have to do your homework and practice your music in order to do well. The more you put into it, the more you'll get out of it!
WE PLAY GREAT MUSIC HERE!
LETS HAVE A GREAT YEAR!
