The Royal Regiment was entered into the Outstanding Performance Series contest hosted by the Association of Small School Bands. At the region 10 round, our march placed 1st in the march category and our two concert selections placed 1st and 2nd in the concert category. Advancing to the area east round our march placed 3rd, with our two concert selections placing 6th and 7th. Although not advancing to state, the band did very well, advancing to the area level for the second time.
Welcome to the Royal Regiment Band
I direct the Kountze M.S. Band (The Royal Regiment), assist with the Kountze H.S. Band (The King's Regiment), and team teach the beginner band. I am glad to be teaching at a small school where students can be involved in many activities. I encourage my students to work extremely hard and proficiently while I have them and to take their instrument home, in case they have time to practice.
Sixth Grade Music: Mr. Mere, Mr. Ellis, and I teach the basic music theory through the medium of wind instruments and choir. We expect all of our students to be prepared, be respectful to others, listen and apply what they hear to the best of their ability.
Middle School Band: Each week students will complete a major test grade (2-4 measures of their all-region tryout music). We expect all of our students to be prepared, be respectful to others, listen and apply what they hear to the best of their ability.
