    Welcome to the official web site of the Herbert Hoover Band. 

    Last year we had 115 band members in the Spring Concert band.  This was the second biggest elementary band that Neshaminy has had in over 20 years! 


    Lessons are offered to all 4th and 5th grade students at Herbert Hoover. Beginner 4th and 5th grade students start lessons on October 3rd or 4th and will be qualifying to join the band in February in preparation for the Spring Concert.   Advanced 5th grade students will be performing in both the Holiday Concert in December and the Spring Concert in May.


    All concerts are at Neshaminy High School's Theodore Kloos Auditorium. 

    Some of the contents of this web site can be found in your child's band folder.  You can reach me at either of my 2 schools if you have any questions.

    Email is the easiest way to get in touch with me.  I will be sending out weekly emails to all parents to keep them informed about all items and news related to their child's instrumental music education.
