Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Jeffrey Brown, Jr.
This is my second year as director of bands at Yazoo County High and Middle School, and my 20th year of teaching!
In addition to teaching, I enjoy writing music for bands and percussion ensembles. I also enjoy performing; my favorite instruments to play are drums (and really, any of the percussion instruments), guitar, and bass.
I hold an Associate Degree from Jones County Junior College, and both a Bachelor and Master of Music Education from the University of Mississippi.
6th grade/beginner band: We'll learn the fundamentals of how to play an instrument, how to read music, and more! We'll play in the Christmas Spectacular and at the end-of-the-school-year show! Information will be sent home with students, and will be sent through school status messages.
7th grade band: We'll continue working with those fundamentals, and we'll be getting your child ready to join the high school band in 8th grade! In addtion to playing at the Christmas Spectacular and the end-of-the-year concert, we'll also be inviting 7th graders to sit in with the high school band at select football games! Information will be sent home with students, and will be sent through school status messages.
