About Us

John P. Stevens High School has an instrumental music program truly devoted to providing a variety of opportunities to its young musicians. The 225-member band program boasts a diverse assortment of musical groups. Some are audition-based, such as the Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, and Lab Jazz Band. Other ensembles, including the Group VI Marching Band (175 member), welcome participation by interest. All of the groups in the John P. Stevens Band Program open endless opportunities for students to truly involve themselves in the world around them.


Whether it’s serving the community at local tree-lightings, township festivals, parades, or competing at local and statewide jazz band, marching band, and concert band festivals, these young musicians work diligently to continually bring their musical involvement to higher levels.


In addition to participation in the various ensembles in the program, individual students are encouraged to challenge themselves by auditioning for region and statewide ensembles. In 2016, 48 JPS band members were selected by audition for Central Jersey Region II Ensembles. In 2016, 28 students were accepted into the NJ All-State Band.


Ever committed to a well-rounded music education, the John P. Stevens High School Band Program seeks to maintain its tradition of excellence in music.
