Disney Trip Itinerary

Below please find a link to the Disney Trip itinerary as well as necessary forms for you to complete.

Rooming lists will be shared at the PPBA meeting prior to the trip on January 12th.  All forms will need to be turned in by that date.  If your child already turned in forms for Marching Band they do not need to turn in a second set of forms.  

Monday, December 12, 2016

We have two simple ways for our PPBA members, friends, and families
to volunteer a few hours of their time and raise money!  

Our goal is to raise a total of $2000 simply by having as many people as possible volunteer to work the two runs below.  The more people that sign up, the more money we make.  Volunteer jobs will be simple that day:  sign up runners, fill race packets, fold t-shirts. etc.  Get a group together and make it a fun day! 

The two races are listed below.  Simply click the link to the Sign-Up Genius website, sign up, and that's it - easy!



Sign up now! It's an easy way to raise money and support our band programs and students!  Every dollar counts in a fiscal year where our budget is tight!!!

Thank you!

Gertrude Hawk money is due to Heather Epting by Monday December 12th!

Jazz Band Audition Information

Hello All, 

I hope everyone has enjoyed the marching season and the well deserved post season break. In the interest of not burning out both parents and more importantly our student musicians I have decided to start jazz band a little later this year. After so many years of going from marching season straight into jazz season it became apparent to me that students were never getting a break. Jazz band has been ending in June leading right into marching rehearsals and as soon as marching rehearsals wrapped in November I was beginning jazz band. Hopefully the couple extra weeks has been enjoyable, and maybe even left you anxious for the start of the jazz season.

With that being said, ITS FINALLY TIME !!!

This Friday December 9th, at 3:30pm will be this 2016-2017 Pitman High School Jazz Band Auditions. 

This years auditions requirements are:

1)All students must perform a Bb concert major scale. 

2)High School students, in addition to the scale will sight read a small section of music. 

That's it, that's all, nothing more. 

After the auditions results will be posted in the band room. 

Our first rehearsal will be Thursday December 15th from 6pm until 8pm. At this point students will be given the tentative schedule for the year.

Looking forward to the upcoming jazz season!

Mr. V

May 10th, 2016

Dear Instrumental Music Parent:

The Pitman High School Department of Instrumental Music is presently planning a performance tour to Disney World in Orlando, FL to participate in the Magic Music Days in January of 2017.  This tour will include a performance at one of the Disney Resort parks and an educational workshop taught by expert Disney musicians.  This tour will include the following:

  • Airfare through Southwest Airlines
  • All Lunches and Dinners w/ the option to purchase breakfast coupons.
  • Admission to each of the Disney Theme parks
  • Workshop and Recording session
  • Performance at one of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks
  • Hotel Accommodations at the All Star Music Resort - 4 students to a room (option of 2 available for additional cost.)

The details of this trip are currently being finalized and once we recieve approval from the school we will be able to make more information available.  Rest assured we are committed to making sure that each child gets to participate in this trip.  We will not allow finances to be an obstacle for any child and will be scheduling fundraisers specifically for this trip.
Fundraisers will be available on both an individual and a group basis.  We just ask that you send a 50.00 deposit in to hold your space and so we can reserve our hotel rooms.  We are confident that we can keep the cost of this trip to no more than 750.00 through our fundraising efforts.

Parents are more than welcome to attend this trip as well as we are in need of chaperones.  The cost of the chaperones will be slightly higher to allow for a single or a double room.  Payments maybe sent through PayPal to either treasurer@pitmanband.org or director@pitmanband.org.  Please use the send money to friends or family option when using PayPal.
