All students received 4 weeks worth of music in a packet Monday March 16, if you have been working on those materials, GREAT! this week and next you can continue with week 3 and week 4. If you haven't yet started in, there's still plenty of time, just start on week 1 and progress from there!  If you have the internet, go to my resources page and you will find links to join smart music. There are different codes for each class. Smart music will give you the opportunity to play along with a recording and it is also a way to submit your performances on quizzes directly to me. This is a great resource and has been offered free across the nation to help band instruction continue remotely. Each band has it's own individualized assignments. If you don't have the internet, follow the instructions on the packet you received March 16. If you were not there that day, your materials will be at the scheduled drop points. 

    The most important thing in this strange time is that you KEEP PRACTICING, even if it is just a little each day!

    If you don't have your instrument, finished your packet and need more to practice, or have other issues during this time, please reach out at ebressler@wc314.org and I will try to help in any way I can! 

    If you have Facebook, follow the "Thunder Band" page for fun updates, games, or videos from me (coming soon)...

  • Welcome to the West Carroll Thunder Bands!  I am Emily Nunemaker-Bressler and I am responsible for directing the high school marching, pep, jazz, and concert bands, the middle school band and jazz band, the 6th grade band, and the 5th grade beginning band. 

    The West Carroll Thunder Music Department has a proud history of success including four straight IHSA Class B Music Sweepstakes State Championships.  Our continued success depends on the dedication, hard work, and passion of each and every music student and their parents district-wide.  In return our staff pledges to give your student all the tools they need to succeed at every level.  Together we can build a program that we are all proud to be a part of!
