Hi there!

I am so honored to be a part of your band! I cannot wait to meet each and every one of the students, parents, and supporters of the Shawnee Mission North Band Program! We are so fortunate to have on staff this year:

  • Michaela Middleton and Ellery Bailey – Dance Coaches
  • Casey Miller – Percussion
  • Lyle Simpson – Hocker Grove
  • Ed Tovar – Associate SMN

As you are able, please join Remind. As I understand this has been used in the past and for continuity I have created a class (hopefully) in the same format as previous years. The link for the Remind “Class” is below!


We have been busy working on the upcoming show, and I believe we have found just the one! The show is entitled “The Rise of the Phoenix” and features “Legacy” by Michael Markowski, “Ashes” by Celine Dion, and “The Firebird Finale” by Igor Stravinsky. The sheet music and an mp3 are linked below! I’m excited to hear what you all think!

Our work continues in creating exciting theatrical elements to the musical performance! I cannot tell you how excited I am to meet the students, parents, and community in the very near future. With that being said, should you have the ability to do so please follow the link below and begin practicing! (Please reach out if you have any technical difficulty, I am happy to help)
