    Welcome to the Payne Jr. High Band webpage!!

    Throughout the year your band student will get several notices regarding performances, field trips, band t-shirts, etc.  I usually send home a copy for families, however it is strongly recommended that you check in with this page frequently to keep up on all of the band events. Please register to this page so that you get e-alerts and updates!

    I am confident that your student will thrive in our music department, and am excited to dive into band this year!  Joining the band program here at Payne is one of the most rewarding experiences your child can have- Welcome to the Panther Band Family! 


    We will be splitting our concerts into 2 nights:

    Percussion-Palooza (Percussion Ensemble) May 10th at 6:30pm- PJHS Cafeteria 

    Cadet, Symphonic and Jazz Bands- May 13th at 6:30pm- PJHS gym/courtyard 

    Check out the flyers for more information:


    PercussionPalooza May 10th!


    Cadet, Symph, Jazz Concert May 13th!




    We will be using Google Classroom to start this year, so I will also post any important information on your students' class page. I will be available all class period for your student, even if it is not a live MEET lesson that day, so please feel free to contact me then or before/after school. 

    Attendance will be taken each class period! Only students that do not attend live MEET or turn in the assignment for the day will be marked absent. To avoid incorrect absences, please try to check in every MEET or email me that you are working on your assignment if you are unable to finish it during the class period.
