     Magnolia Trojan Band  
     
     

    Hello I am Kevin B. Slocumb, and I am thrilled to inform you that the band program here at Magnolia is thriving.  The students have embraced the challenge of performance excellence and are progressing nicely.  We will not stop striving for excellence in everything we do. I am available from 11:15-11:40 during the school day.  If you would like to contact me feel free to do so at 910-747-4600 or email me at kevin.slocumb@robeson.k12.nc.us

     
    If you want to call during the day the best time to reach me is during my planning from 15:45 to 1:45 the entirety of my schedule is as follows:
    8:05-9:05 8th Grade Band
    9:10-10:10 7th Grade Band
     10:15-11:15 5th and 6th Grade Band
    11:15-11:40 Lunch
    11:40-12:40 3rd and 4th Grade
    12:45-1:40 1st and 2nd Grade
    1:45-2:35 Kindergarten
    Ordinarily we spend the first 10 mins taking out our instruments and we warm up, once the warm up is done we play through our music. Prior to all-county  we would spend at least 15 minutes on sight reading.
     
    My class expectations are simple, "play your horn" , I try not to complicate that by making it clear to students that the key to success in my class is to play your horn. Playing and Performance is 75% of your grade, I make exceptions in extenuating circumstances.
