Mr. John Brooks

Welcome back new and returning band students to CC Griffin!  I am beginning my third year as band director and I am excited to meet all the rising 6th graders and catch up with my 7th and 8th graders.  I hope you are looking forward to a great year of rehearsals and performances.  If you look under "Class Documents" on the left, you will find the syllabus for this year.  The syllabus will also be posted on Canvas.  Check this page and Canvas frequently, as I will be posting information about assignments, upcoming performances, and other band events.  If you need anything or have questions outside of school, please email me or send me a Canvas message.  Here's to a great year in Band!
 ***Rising 6th Grade Students and Parents***
Thank you for the awesome turnout we had for our Virtual Instrument Sampler Night!  If you take a look at the "Class Documents" and "Useful Links" pages on the left, you will find the recording link to the meeting and some helpful videos/resources from Mr. Davis - our representative from Music & Arts.  If your child is not sure what instrument he/she wants to play yet, that's ok.  Some of our Band students don't decide until the Fall so you have plenty of time.  If you have any questions along the way, please contact me by email ( and I will be happy to help.  I'm really excited to see everyone in the Fall!
