Band & Music

Hello and welcome to my page. I'm Josh Baker the Music and Band teacher, but you already knew that if you read the header. Oh well On to business.

The Band is doing big things this year. This year we marched a field show at the football games, a first for these kids. And despite the inexperience of all involved the kids knocked it out of the park. We are also currently playing pep band tunes at all home basketball games for the Junior High and High School Girls teams. The next big to do for the band is the Oblong Spooktacular Parade. This will be a fun occasion as the band will be dressed as stormtroopers and led by Drum Major Darth Vader. I myself will escort the band as the Emperor. I will give those reading this two guesses as to what song we are playing and the first doesn't count. Come down to Oblong on Saturday October 26 to support the band. 

The 5th grade beginner band has also been hard at work learning their instruments. Soon we will start getting them ready for their debut performance at the Christmas concert this year. 

Elementary music has been going great as well The kids have been learning about the elements of music, musical genres, and much more. It's been a blast.

This year has been great so far and I look forward to seeing what the rest of the year has in store for me and the kids. 

Have a nice day,

Josh Baker
