WELCOME TO 7TH & 8TH GRADE BAND!
MR. JOHN P. McCARTHY
Director of Bands
Welcome back to the Band Room.
I am so glad to see you!
Please bring your instrument to school with you and your music folder/book. We will be playig outside whenever possible. Be prepared, it may be a little cool/drizzly...
Please dress appropriately.
Do not assume that we are not playing just because it may rain later.
Always bring your drum sticks "Just in Case" we can't go outside.
PARENTS: You should be hearing the students playing their band instruments at home. They must continue practicing so that we may have some sort of 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!
