Our Instrument Bell Covers and speciality musician masks are officially in and ready to go! This means we can start playing in person again!

For Plan B folks, it means we can play in class second semester! For extracurricular folks, it means we can start to bring back our extracurricular ensembles that feature wind instruments, starting with Jazz Band (interest meeting on December 1st).

Although there are still caps on the number of students playing inside and outside, and time limits set on playing, this is a huge step forward!

Welcome back Winter Percussion! We’re excited to have band students back on campus for the first time since March!

Band directors from Wake schools create virtual performance for Class of 2020

Millbrook Bands congratulate the Class of 2020!! We will miss you! And since we're certain that you're bummed that you couldn't perform Pomp and Circumstance live at an 8AM graduation ceremony, here's a version that was put together for you by some of our WCPSS band directors:https://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/education/article242595246.html

With COVID-19 coronavirus restrictions canceling high school graduation ceremonies, band directors at Wake County schools got together to record a virtual version of "Pomp & Circumstance" for the Class of 2020.

Student Computer Access Survey- Millbrook High

Hey Parents! We are still working as fast as we can to identify any students that don't have access to a computer at home. While we can't make any promises right now, if your student needs a device while we are out, please let us know here:

This survey will help Millbrook High School strategize and request resources from WCPSS to better serve students who do not currently have access to a device at home. Please fill out this survey so we can best contact families who need help with access for their student(s) to continue moving forward...

As you are aware, the current volatile situation is impacting all areas of school, including our band programs. Below is a volunteer opportunity for qualified high school (college students, feel free to help out as well!) band students to give Wake County middle school and elementary students free additional instruction outside of the classroom through free online video services such as Zoom, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, and/or Skype. The goal is to provide a resource for young musicians, allowing them to maintain skills (and possibly to make forward progress) during this time of uncertainty. The focus is on proficient high school tutors helping middle school band students with their basic skills and online classroom band program assignments.

This independent program is being piloted by Millbrook High School student Trevor Petzold.

From the data received in the sign-up process, every attempt will be made to match qualified high school musicians with young musicians. Sessions will be scheduled for 15 minutes each. Young musicians can get help with classroom band playing assignments, scales, and basic technique. Middle and elementary school band students interested in setting up a mentoring session need to fill out this form: https://forms.gle/Dg3ka8rEPLEvHE2d6

High school mentors can use this service as volunteer hours and teaching others can help make you a better player. Please share the Instrument Mentoring link below with any qualified high school students that you think would be a good fit and interested in helping as a mentor: https://forms.gle/ZMFokA2eaNJzcZGM7

Please send any program related questions to [email protected].

Millbrook just did a fantastic opener here at the Fuquay-Varina Festival of bands !!! OUTSTANDING
Millbrook High School Football got off to a bumby start last night giving up 51 points to the defending North Carolina 4A champion Wake Forest with no score of their own. The marching band in their first 2018 appearance did a great job trying to pump the fans and players up. Tristen Pullen #3 for the Cats was able to rejuvenate the Cats before a forced fumble in the Red Zone on the WF 18. Go Cats!
