The school year doesn't start until September, but the band year starts in August with the beginning of Band Camp. We extend a welcome to all freshman of the 2016-2017 band year - students and parents alike!
Band has a broad meaning here at J.P. Stevens. Your participation could be in a range of groups or just one. Our program consists of Marching Band, three Concert Bands, two Jazz Bands, Percussion, Woodwind, Brass Ensembles and Winter Guard.
Last year, we had many successes in all aspects of our band - We were proud to see 27 of our students selected through audition to the 2014 All-State Band and 55 students to the Central Jersey Region Band. These students represent the highest number from any one school in New Jersey!
The Band is the single largest group at J.P.S. with over 300 participants, and students usually find a sense of belonging and community here.
If you are signed up for Marching Band, your year will begin very soon with Band Camp, which is a great time to acclimate yourself to high school and make new friends.
We look forward to meeting all of you, students and parents soon!
