Luke Johnson- band director

Welcome to the 2021-2022 OMS Band Program!

We are so excited that are considering band for the upcoming school year! For all returning students, welcome back and for rising 6th graders, WELCOME! Please check in on this website regularly for important announcements regarding concerts, events, rental information,  student resources, videos, photos, etc... 

Our mission is to provide students with the best possible music instruction and prepare them to be lifelong music lovers as well as informed patrons of music. Through modern, standards based instruction and assessment, students will get opportunities to experience music through demonstration, individual attention, hands-on experience, as well as peer interaction.

Since instrument tryouts didn't happen in the Spring as they normally would have, we will need to schedule a time for all rising 6th graders to be able to try out each instrument to see which one is the best fit. This step in the process is crucial because students are more successful when they get to pick the instrument that is suited to their personality as well as their physical bodies.
