WELCOME TO 7TH & 8TH GRADE BAND!
MR. JOHN P. McCARTHY
Director of Bands
Welcome to the band room! My name is Mr. McCarthy and I have been teaching in Jackson for 30 years. My primary instrument is the 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!
