Welcome to the SHHS Bronco Band program! The purpose of the music program at Spring Hill High School is to provide a fun, exciting and well-rounded education for every student. Instruction is geared to foster the spirit of learning within each student so that they receive a quality music education. The program encompasses concert, jazz, pep and marching bands.

A Message from Director Dan Wooge:

Marching Band

Marching season continues through late October. Along with daily rehearsals, students will have REQUIRED sectionals once a week at 7:15 as well as numerous performances. Students must memorize music and practice outside of class and sections. This class meets first hour.

Concert Band

Concert band will begin at the conclusion of Marching band. Students will perform in concerts and competitions as well as opportunities for solos and ensembles.

Concert etiquette

Students and parents should adhere to standard concert etiquette. This includes keeping mobile devices hidden away during performances in a darkened theater. There should be no talking during said performances. In between multi-movement pieces, there should be no clapping. Attendees should stay in their seats while music is being performed. The exception would be a restless or crying child.

Jazz Band

Jazz band meets second hour and has grown to nearly a full compliment. For the 2018-2019 year, the jazz band will be an auditioned group. If you want to get started preparing, contact Mr. Wooge. We will work out of the Essential Elements jazz method as well as performing many different styles of sheet music. As part of a rotation, students will also present short Youtube videos on selected jazz artists. Students will perform at concerts, community events, and another chance we get! All jazz students must have a tux shirt and black dress pants.

Extra Credit

Students are always encouraged to do extra credit in order to recover lost points. The top priority is to recover all in-class points (tests, worksheets, etc) first. Then students can attend music performances (must pertain to their band instrument) and write a one page (typed, 12 pt. font, 1" margins in essay format) review of what they heard. Turn this into Mr. Wooge. Please have performances approved in advance by Mr. Wooge

Students may also write reviews of YOUTUBE videos. The same format as performance reviews, but make sure to include the URL of the video in your report.
