Band at Stone Mountain and Northridge Elementary Schools

We have two classes of band: Beginning Band and Intermediate. Beginning Band is for students who have never played a band instrument before and for those who are switching to a new instrument. Intermediate Band is for those who have already played their instruments for at least one full school year. Click on the "Stone Mountain/Northridge" tab above for more details.

Woodwind Instruction for Schools

I am currently the woodwind instructor for the four middle schools in Littleton Public Schools. I also teach woodwinds at Ken Caryl Middle School. I teach woodwinds for the Dakota Ridge Screaming Eagles Marching Band and for the Heritage High School Scarlet Regiment Marching Band. If you are interested in having me come and teach woodwinds (private lessons or small groups) at your school, please reach out to me at

About Mrs. Watkins

I've been a band director since 1989. Music has been my life since I was five years old, when I started playing piano. Now I play many different instruments, and I love teaching students how to play! I am married, and my husband and I have four grown kids and two dogs.
