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 2018-2019 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 Indoor Guard.
Last year, we had many successes in all aspects of our band.The John P. Stevens Band Program is proud to announce that 36 students were selected through audition in December to the Central Jersey Region Band; 4 of those students were selected on a second instrument! More recently, 22 of our students were selected through audition to the All-State Band; 3 of those students were selected on a second instrument! These selections represent the largest number from any one school in New Jersey!
The Band is the single largest group at J.P.S. 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!
