*8th Grade Students enrolled in HS Band will play their HS audition. If a student is not continuing in the band program in HS they will need to prepare the Scoggins Audition

Solo Contest

Our Solo Contest will be May 5th. In place of sectionals I am available before and after school by appointment to give students assistance in their preparation. Although this is an independent project I want to help as much as possible to ensure a successful performance on the 5th of May.

Most Symphonic Band students will be playing with a piano accompanist. HOW COOL!! Rehearsal Times are posted in the Band Hall. If a student did not turn in their selected solo to me prior to April 6th they may be unable to play with a accompanist. . Students will get 2 practice times in addition to the performance on the 5th. The rehearsal schedule will be out next week. If you have a conflict with the 5th please let me know in advance. This performance is required as it has been on the calendar all year.


The Scoggins Middle School Band Booster is looking for people for next year’s Board. We need a President, a Treasurer ( a financial background is very helpful), someone to coordinate chaperones and volunteers, a Secretary, someone to handle spirit wear and someone for hospitality.

For the most part these are very easy jobs with a 45 minute meeting once a month and an additional hour or two commitment a month. (Our Treasurer usually works 4-6 hours a month, but may climb to 8-10 hours a month for fundraising or startup). This is a wonderful opportunity to be involved and informed! Come to our meeting this Wednesday to learn more! The meeting is in the Scoggins Band Hall at 6pm
