  • Welcome to the Dobie Junior High School Band

    Home Page

    This web page is a valuable resource for students and parents to stay connected with the Band program at Dobie.  Here you can find information concerning director contacts, student performances, upcoming events, and links to various music support sites.  Please refer to this website often to keep track of what is going on in the band program.  The navigation bar on the left side of the screen contains most of the information that you will need.  Please feel free to contact me anytime you have any questions. 

    Mission Statement

    The purpose of the Dobie Junior High School band program is to educate and encourage students to become thoughtful and discerning individuals while developing a deep appreciation for music.  In addition the program will continue to represent and reflect the positive values of our community through the involvement of musically literate and performance proficient students.


  • Remote Learning Information

    Here is how we intend to handle things for now regarding our remote learning situation.  We will continue with our weekly practice sheets.  In order to ensure parent envolvement, practice sheets will require a parent signature, so this means you will need to scan or take a picture of the practice sheet with a signature before submitting it.  Here is a copy of the practice sheet.

    We will have weekly playing assignments.  Usually these assignments will be done through Smart Music; however, whenever music is not available on Smart Music, we will have you submit your recordings on Google Classroom.

    We have created Google Classrooms for each band class.  It is imperative that you enroll in the appropriate class.  The class codes are listed below.  Please check your Google Classroom frequently to stay up to speed on class assignments.
