Incoming Grade 9 LSM Band Information/Wind Ensemble Auditions

Dear Eighth Grade Band Member,

As you enter the second half of your final year of middle school and prepare for your entry to Lewis S. Mills High School, I would like to take a moment to congratulate you on your eligibility for membership in the award winning Lewis S. Mills High School Spartan Band.

Membership in the LSM Band Program is not only an honor, but it’s an outstanding way to increase your attractiveness as it relates to college acceptance after high school. In addition to our local performances, you will have the opportunity to audition for a number of honors festivals, travel on our regularly scheduled performance tours, attend social functions and have a lot of fun making great music with new friends.

I do realize that as you make your way through all of the information, it may sound a bit overwhelming, but I assure you that it’s not. Believe it or not the schedule is designed so that students are able to participate in athletics as well as not put a strain on their academic responsibilities, which I consider to be first and foremost. The key to success for all students is to develop good quality organizational skills, which our program is designed to do. I encourage all eligible students to try it in ninth grade. Most everyone who does is glad they did, and stays for all four years.

Let me close by saying that I look forward to working with all of our new members come the fall, and I am optimistic at the prospect of making the 2020-21 Lewis S. Mills High School Spartan Band the best yet.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me by email at if you have any questions at all about the Lewis S. Mills Spartan Band or the high school in general. I will be glad to help in any way I can.

Mr. Deeb
