Band Program

The band program offers instruction on traditional band instruments at beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Beginner and intermediate bands include 7th and 8th grade students. Advanced music is offered to grades 9-12. This program features students at school functions such as masses and prayer services, pep rallies, athletic events and seasonal musical productions. A few years ago, a Jazz Band was added and they perform at the Draw Down and other special events. St. Joseph currently has over 100 students in its marching and jazz bands. 

The band program is led by Ronnie Russell, who joined the St. Joseph family in 2004. In his ten years with the school, Mr. Russell has grown the band program to one of the largest and most popular extra-curricular classes.
