This afternoon at the Board of Education meeting, Michelle Beck was recommended to become our new Assistant Band Director! Ms Beck is returning to Birmingham from South Carolina where she is currently finishing her Doctorate in Horn Performance. She will a valuable member of our team taking on the beginning band. She will also be working closely with the JHS and MBHS Bands. We are excited to welcome her!
The Board also approved Mr. Rogers as Associate Band Director. He will be taking on the duties at MBJHS. Mr. Rogers is the perfect person to lead the transition of our 6th grade musicians to 7th grade as well continue the excellent instruction of our current 8th and 9th grade band members. Mr. Rogers will continue to work closely with both the beginning band and the high school bands.
We are working on a date for a "meet and greet" and I will share information as soon as possible. Until then, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
