Band Notes: Week 22

January 8 - 11

A Note From Your Directors

Dear Staley Band Families,


Welcome back to the Spring semester of 2019!! We hope everyone had a happy and healthy holiday! We have many exciting things happening this semester as this is also considered band's competition season. We do like to ease the students (and families) back into the semester so as far as events are concerned, January will be a "light" semester.

Lastly, we said good-bye to Mr. School now that he has graduated and has entered the job search but we are excited to welcome our new student teacher; Mr. Garcia! Mr. Garcia is a current student at The University of North Texas and his primary instrument is clarinet. He will be in and out of classes throughout The Staley Band and will be working with our students this semester.


As always, if you have any additional questions then please reach out.

-Mr. Wood, Ms. Hoffman, & Mr. Seymour

Sectional Schedule

No sectionals this week but all will resume the normal schedule next week.

  • All students have received their solo and should be deep into the rehearsal process.
  • Students are encouraged to visit the website found HERE to play with the recordings provided so they may practice with a piano accompaniment.
