    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! 



    Please refer to the Band Handbook for all information regarding instrument rentals, materials needed, fees, class policies, and the current list of Upcoming Events and Concerts. The $30 fee is for all band classes: Cadet, Symphonic, Jazz, and Percussion Ensemble. The $80 rental fee is only for students that play percussion and  those renting a school instrument such as tuba, bari sax, etc. Please be sure to email Bessette to request a school instrument!
