    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! 

    Welcome back Panthers! In efforts to stay updated as easily as possible throughout Distance Learning, I will post frequent updates here and will e-alert you to those updates (if you have subscribed to my page). Here we go:

    Please check out the Band Handbook. If you are in need of a school instrument, the information on applying for that is included.


    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.
