Students and Parents,

Welcome to one of the most exciting experiences of which you can become a part – The Band!  Now, more than ever, we have information to justify why we do these demanding, yet rewarding, activities.  Experts have concluded that the study of music helps with spatial reasoning, test taking and overall quality of life!  Factor in social skills, emotional development, leadership training, group interaction, aesthetic perception, music making, and the discipline of being in a successful music program, I don’t know why anyone would not want to be in a successful music program like the one we’ve built at McBee High School!  The ultimate goal is a lifelong understanding and appreciation for quality music and music making!

The MHS music program has seen great strides over the last decade.  We support many full ensembles which are competitive at all levels across the state.  The music program at McBee is one of the most successful in South Carolina winning many awards and championships.  I am honored to be your band director and am looking forward to a great year!

Director of Bands
