Middle School Band

  • Mission Statement

    The mission of the E. E. Jeter School Music Department

    is to teach students the art of musical performance and in the process

    develop their sense of concentration, poise, and self-esteem

    so that they are prepared to pursue music in high school and beyond.  

    In order to reach this Goal:

    It is vitally important that band students at E. E. Jeter practice their music outside of school rehearsals. 

    Consider this your homework for your respective music class. 

    After all, practice makes perfect!  Bands are teams. 

    Every member has an important part to play so that the overall sound is good.  

    It is a requirement that all members are present at every after-school practice and every performance. 

    Performances and after-school rehearsals are part of your grade.  

    You are responsible for the success of your ensemble.
