The saints come marching in at St. Joseph’s with the start of our school band in the 2010/2011 school year!
Led by Director, Bob Hudy, the band is comprised of percussion, brass, and reed instruments. Mr. Hudy has been teaching since 1976 and has been a band director at all school age levels. He has a degree in Music Education with instrumental certification from UW-Milwaukee.
Band allows students in grades 4-8 the ability to express their musicality and creativity as well as teaches them to work together as a team in order to make music which is both pleasing and inspiring.
Band practice is held on Friday mornings during school with each of the groups meeting on a rotating schedule so that children are never taken out of the same class every week. Sometimes the weekly lesson brings the entire band together and practice is always 45 minutes long. Students sign up for a semester at a time.
You can hear our Band perform at our Christmas and Spring Concerts and at Catholic School’s open house. Other events outside of school may also be scheduled.
