Jenny L. Collins, Director
Students and Band Families,
I hope that everyone is safe and doing well in our new "normal" routine! This is an unprecedented time, but the silver lining is that we are all getting to spend more time with our families, focus on our own individual development, and will be able to tell the stories of these historic times later in our lives.
I would like to share information that all students and band families will need for daily NTI assignments. Each assignment is posted on google classroom and sometimes using a program called Flip Grid. There is a link from each child's google classroom assignment straight to Flip Grid. Students who have re- quested paper packets of their work have been provided those materials and will need to follow Mrs. Collier's directions for drop-off and pick up. All assignments are entered into the Infinite Campus gradebook at the end of the week.
Students and parents, please feel free to contact me (email@example.com) if you need anything during this time. I miss you all and look forward too seeing you when these days have passed!
Jenkins Independent School Band Program
The centerpiece of our entire program is performance in the concert band setting
All 6-12th Grade Students participate in our fall marching unit
This group studies and performs jazz and jazz fusion styles
Private lessons are provided by the Jenkins Band to students free of charge and can be set up by the director.
The pep band will perform at selected women and men's basketball games during that season.
Students will not only learn to perform, but also to apply music analysis and composition skills in original works.
Students may compete for participation in county, district, UVA Wise Jazz, and other Honor Bands.
