Another year is in the books! I'm so proud of all that the band students have accomplished this year despite the challenges they faced. They have been a true joy to teach, and I will miss them over the summer or, in the case of our seniors, next year.

Band camp will be during the week of July 26-30 from 8:00 am-3:00pm in the NCHS Band Room/Practice Field. Students need to wear athletic clothing and shoes that are suitable for summer heat. They need to eat breakfast before arriving, wear sunscreen, and bring water and lunch (we will provide lunch on Friday). We will also perform for parents on that Friday (the 30th) evening at 6:00 pm followed by a meeting where you can receive information for the year.

Have a wonderful summer! Go Chiefs!

These students had a great time performing at the LMEA District II Solo and Ensemble Assessment at Pineville High School today! Solos were performed by Mariana Martinez, flute, and Wesley Clark, tuba. Adriana Hernandez, Jeron Larry, and Aidan St. Peter performed a trio on flute, alto sax, and bass clarinet, respectively. They represented Natchitoches Central well!

March is “Music In Our Schools Month!” While COVID-19 has made many things difficult, musicians and music educators have done whatever it takes to keep the music going. Whether we have to use trash cans or the finest materials available, music in our schools is essential! Thank you to all of our music students and educators who keep the music alive!

Now, please enjoy the NCHS percussion section performing “Talkin’ Trash” by Lamar D. Burkhalter.

"September" by Earth, Wind, & Fire

The NCHS Band recognized Black History Month by rehearsing "September" by Earth, Wind, & Fire. We would like to recognize a few of the many notable black musicians who helped shape music history.

This video also features our two student teachers: Wesley Williams, conductor, and Juan Santos, percussion.

Enjoy, and Happy Black History Month!

[02/24/21]   School starts back in person tomorrow!!! Excited to finally see all of my students! We have a mandatory after school practice tomorrow (Thursday) for all brass and woodwinds. Only percussionists who play on September need to come. See you tomorrow!

Although school campuses will be closed, teachers and students will still attend school virtually. NPSB will be using Monday, January 11, 2021 as a virtual instruction day to ensure our schools do not lose any more of the required instructional time mandated by LDOE.
