Spring Hill Junior High Band

3101 Spring Hill Road

Longview, TX 75605

 

 

The Spring Hill band program has an approximate enrollment of 450 students. The junior high program averages 280 students in grades six through eight.  There are 3 full-time band directing positions and a part-time percussion instructor in the district, all of which teach at every grade level.  Students begin band in the sixth grade with “like-instrument” classes.  The seventh and eighth grade band members perform together in the fall and are then split into two performing ensembles for the remainder of the year.  Both groups participate in UIL Concert and Sight Reading Contest.  The SHJH Varsity band, which consists of a mixture of seventh and eighth graders, is a consistent UIL Sweepstakes winner.  It was 2012 OPS runner-up, 2014 OPS winner, and is currently a 7-time consecutive OPS state finalist.  Heavy emphasis is placed on individual growth through All-Region tryouts and Solo and Ensemble participation.  The Spring Hill community and school administration are very supportive of the band program.  There are ninety students performing in this band.

 

Recent News:

I am very proud to announce that the SHJH 8th grade band received 4th place at State Finals in the Concert category with their performance of Sparks, and 7th place at State Finals in the March category with their performance of Pride of Arizona.
