Welcome Band starts in 5th grade.  Our 5th grade class is a beginning class for students who have never played before.  Band instruments include:  Clarinet, Flute, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet, Baritone, Trombone, and Percussion (Bells and Snare Drum).  6th grade band is a second level class where we build onto the skills we already have.  We also add some instruments: Tenor Saxophone, Bass Clarinet, and Tuba.  Both bands perform 2 to 3 concerts per year.  Band meets within the school day and students do not miss any other academic subject.


This is my 36th year in music education and my 29th in Gilbert.  It has been my pleasure to be at Pioneer since 2010.  I received both my Bachelors and Masters in Music Education at the Crane School of Music in NY.  I have performed in numerous bands and orchestras.  One of my fondest memories is performing at the winter Olympic Games in Lake Placid, NY.  I tell my students that they never know what opportunities will come their way the longer they play an instrument.
