Salem HS is seeking a percussion instructor for remainder of season, and definitely to continue on to work next season. They will be part of designing next year's show, writing music (this could be flexible), and continuing to help the batter and pit grow musically and technically.


Salary will be based on experience. Please email me if you have any questions or are interested!


John Haney, Director of Bands

Salem Community High School

Any show or camp news from Southern IL. I used to be from Newton now live in KY so this forum is my only source of band news from IL.


Newton's marching band is doing an Aaron Copland show this year! Its a really great show!
