This is my 6th year teaching band at Capitol Hill and my 18th year teaching in St. Paul. Band at Capitol Hill is open to all students in 4th-8th grade. I teach 2 elementary bands (beginning and advanced) as well as 3 middle school bands (beginning/cougar band, intermediate/varsity band, and advanced/concert band).
Elementary band recruiting and registration will take place over the first 3 weeks of school. Parents of 4th and 5th grade students should look for the elementary band screening form by the end of the first week of school. A sign-up form will be sent home after an instrument has been selected.
I would also like to acknowledge our fantastic PTO who funded a brand new sound system for both the band and orchestra classrooms. We now have high quality audio playback and recording capabilities, which is a huge benefit for our programs.
Don't forget to keep an eye on the school calendar on the main Capitol Hill page for all our concert dates. There is also a more extensive band calendar available to view from my homepage. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about the band program. E-mail is my preferred method of contact. I look forward to a wonderful year of music making!
