Welcome to the Wantagh Middle School's Seventh and Eighth Grade Band programs! I am very excited to work with you! Please read this website to become acquainted with our rules, regulations, requirements and our many opportunities.
Our band program consists of band rehearsals, lessons, home practice, and performances. Playing an instrument is one of life's pleasures, but it surely can be challenging if there is a lack of proper instruction, dedication and encouragement along the way. Good musicians will tell you that, from the beginning, they made most of their progress at home, through regular practice sessions. I hope you will look forward to your child performing for you at home in addition to our school concerts. (And if you are a student reading this, I hope you will look forward to performing for your parents, friends and everybody else!)
I look forward to providing the best musical foundation I can for Wantagh students and I want to help encourage them to reach the highest level of achievement.
