Since 2007, the band has been under the direction of Brandon Barrometti (with the assistance of Josh Baker from 2008-2018, and now with Scott Gasaway). The Centerville Band Program has continued its tradition of excellence in both marching and concert band.
During summer and fall, the local community can hear the high school's marching band, the Centerville Jazz Band (CJB) practicing for marching band competitions and local football games. CJB's dedication, hard work and jazzy sound has been recognized and honored at local (MSBA), regional and national (BOA) competitions.
During the winter, students can participate in winter drumline and winter guard, which compete at local competitions and the WGI World Championships.
Throughout the school year, students learn and play a variety of music in concert band classes. The high school curricular program consists of three concert bands (Concert, Symphonic and Wind Symphony) which meet for one class period, five days a week. Curricular classes are also offered in music theory and jazz improvisation. In addition, the band program is proud of its extracurricular offerings of Basketball Pep Band (BBPB) and Pit Orchestra. Students may also be involved in one of our four jazz ensembles and jazz combo, all of which meet entirely after school.
The Centerville Band Program has a unique philosophy for rehearsal and performance. It is simply stated: Be Your Best!! Success, as we measure it, is striving to be the best we possibly can, every day, every practice, and every performance. The only band we want to beat is our own performance of yesterday. Being your best is a measurement of success that can be achieved by everyone.
