  • Organize the band room

  • File music and digitize the music catalog

Do you have Tools?

Miscellaneous handy work (it may be best to look around the room and brainstorm and offer your ideas for improvement to Ben. If you have a great idea, be sure to tell Ben you don't mind taking the time to do it properly and well and that he's not taking advantage of you.)

Have a Camera?

We need lots of pictures of events and the kids to post on our Facebook page. Please send them to Lori Scarlett at lscarlett@tds.net

Interested in one or more of these volunteer opportunities?  Email Cameron at JMMBands@gmail.com for more information!

Do you know of other musical opportunities for students?

Please send external musical opportunities (e.g., Capitol City Band concerts, Madison Symphony Orchestra dress rehearsals that are open to the public, brass bands, ensembles, etc. -- anything that would be good for the kids to attend); also, please let us know about youth choirs that they can join (brass, flute, etc.) or honor bands, etc.

Please send pertinent information or website to  Lori Scarlett at lscarlett@tds.net

Public Relations Help:

  • Fliers for concerts. These need to go to the Lussier Community Education Center radio station next to Jefferson Middle School. They also should be stamped and posted at the school as well as at local businesses on their bulletin boards (e.g., Metcalfe's).

  • When we have major events, such as the WMEA concert, then we need to send public service annoncements to the TV and radio stations and ask if they would like to interview the kids.

  • We need to advertise our fundraisers (such as the Culver's Share Nights and the Wisconsin Winter Plunge). Again, we need to post fliers and notify media outlets. 

  • Share our events on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, neighborhood apps, etc.

Have a free Saturday morning?

We would like to have occasional Saturday work parties to clean/organize the band room (we could get doughnuts or pizza, which we would eat OUTSIDE of the band room as the purpose of said work parties is to CLEAN the band room).
