    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! 
    Hello percussion families! Instead of percussion ensemble performing on the band concerts, I have decided to do 1 seperate evening dedicated ONLY to our amazing Percussion Ensemble! The concert date will be Monday, May 11th at 6:30pm in the PJHS cafetorium. We will be showcasing marching drums and cadences, Bucket Brigade and novelty acts! This will be a very fun special night for this group, so please mark your calendars now to ensure your students' attendance. This also means that the concerts on Feb. 26th and May 14th are no longer required for Percussion Ensemble students. (unless your child is also in a band ensemble) Please let me know if you have any questions, see you May 11! 
    UPDATE: Symphonic band field trip fees can be paid ONLINE. Cash and check payments can be turned in at the front office before or after school! Please do NOT send money with your student to turn in to at Band!
