Educating the Mind, Expanding the Heart

At St. Joseph Catholic School we seek to develop each child’s musical potential to the fullest through a variety of musical experiences and teaching techniques.  The overall goal of the program is to strive for excellence in musicianship while developing a lifelong appreciation of music.  Therefore, all participants work together to establish a program with high standards.  Every student has the opportunity to study instrumental music in a supportive, caring, and encouraging environment. The St. Joseph Catholic School Cougar Band Program consists of three bands: Band I (Beginning 6th and 7th grade students with no experience), Band II (7th and 8th grade students who have had at least a year’s experience in Band), and Praise Band (strings, woodwinds, vocals, and percussionists who will play at our weekly school Mass.)  The band classes are offered during the school day through our middle school Pathway Enrichment time.  Performance dates for the Band Program are:
