J.W. Pepper Music Library
J. W. Pepper (music publishing house) has set up a virtual library consisting of music we have purchased for our program for the past FOUR YEARS for marching, concert, and jazz bands! 

If a digital version exists of the title, all of the music is accessible on your computer for you to open and play your part.  It may be possible to open the recording (if available) and play along with it. 

Copy the following information and save it so you can return to the site easily.  This opportunity is open through the end of June.  I’ll place this information in the stream for your classes in Google Classroom.

Band Banquet Photos and Slideshow
The band banquet has always included a slide show with photos of the band and videos of the seniors at the end.  With the virus, we are uncertain of the future. Hopefully, school will be in session and the slideshow DVD’s will be ready to buy for $10.00 but if school is cancelled, we will sell them in July when band starts up again.  If your student is moving or will not be in band next year and you would like one, please email me at  [email protected].  I am asking every parent to send me one photo of your student in band. I want to make sure everyone is included.
