Welcome to the Moore West JH Band Page!
At Moore West JH, we offer Beginning Band and Advanced Band (also known as 8th grade band). All who wish to participate in band and learn to play an instrument are more than welcome to join us! You need not fret about getting placed on or having an instrument before school starts-that is a decision we will assist you with on the first day of school. We will also have a Jazz Band that will take place after school. Please contact Mrs. Taylor if you are interested or have any questions.
For students enrolled in or enrolling in band, we ask that you acquire the following books for class:
- 7th Grade: Essential Elements Book 1 and Book 2 (Make sure to get the correct book for YOUR instrument!)
- 8th Grade: Foundations for Superior Performance (Make sure to get the correct book for YOUR instrument!)
- ALL Percussion: Your methods books will differ from the brass and woodwinds. Please check Mr. Smith's website to get the correct book for your instrument!
All band books can be found at your local music store. Some music stores in the area include Gilliam Music, Larsen Music, Norman Music, Palen Music, and Edmond Music. Their information can be found on our Band Documents page. Please contact Mrs. Taylor with any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org or (405) 735-4620 ext 4635.
