Join the Band


The Essex Bands are becoming recognized throughout Vermont as a program of excellence. Our students have been recognized for their musicianship by being accepted into districts, the VT All State Festival band, orchestra, and jazz band, and have been accepted into the New England Music Festival.  


The bands commission music with composers, meet famous composers over Zoom, and have guest artists work with our students. The Essex SWARM! is the envy of fans from communities throughout Vermont. Simply stated...there is a place for everyone in this program. 

Study after study indicates the wide range of benefits that students gain from participating in a school band program. There is now powerful evidence of a cause and effect link between music instruction and intelligence. Here in Essex we strive to teach beyond the music, cultivating an exceptional experience for all students.


You are about to become a part of this huge band community.  We are excited to have you join us!

Contact Mrs. Trutor for details on how you can sign up for band!
