• Welcome to the web page for the Fisher Middle High School Band Program where opportunities are increasing rapidly for involvement in the FMHS Gator Band Program. Inside our school site, you will find pages that are being developed to provide information, downloads, links, etc., that relate to our band program. Whether a student, prospective student, parent, or band supporter, we invite you to check back often and explore our progress with this site. Our goal for this site is to provide parents and students alike with information regarding our bands.

    Students who enroll for band achieve improvement and specific proficiency levels on their individual instruments. Students will learn and develop skills in tone production, intonation, rhythm, technique and musicality along with self-discipline, leadership, interpersonal and teamwork skills.

    Being a part of the FMHS Gator Band is a great way for students to learn about music in a positive environment, create long-lasting memories of shared social and musical experiences, and to simply have fun while making music! It is truly an exciting time to be a part of the FMHS Gator Band.

    If you have any questions please feel free to email our Director, Dr. Fryer at: cheryl.fryer@jschools.org

    Mary Myers and Keith Thibodaux

    Mary Myers and Keith Thibodaux (pictured above) went to Riverdale High School and auditioned for the LMEA District 6 Jr. High Honor Band. They both had successful auditions and are two of only 6 flute players from across District 6 (all of Orleans, Jefferson, and St. Bernard Parishes) who were selected for the group. There were well over 20 flute auditionees Saturday for the Jr. High group. These are our first band students to compete via an audition for any of the District 6 Honor Bands. Truly demonstrates the talent that exists here at Fisher for them to make it in on their first try!
