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!

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
