Norris Knights Bands
Hello to all Band Members and Parents/Guardians!
My name is Jared Dalgleish and I am the Band Director at Norris Middle School. I am so excited to lead you through an awesome music education!
First a little about myself...I am originally from Wisconsin and received my Bachelor of Music in Instrumental Music Education from UW-Stevens Point and my Masters of Music in Trombone from Western Michigan University. I play trombone professionally in the Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra and Bakersfield Jazz Orchestra. I instruct the college low brass students at Cal State Bakersfield and teach private trombone lessons of all ages on the side. I have been in the Norris School District for four years and I recently got married to my wife, Stephanie Dalgleish, the band director at South High School. We have two Siberian Huskies, Nala and Packer, a bearded dragon, a cockatiel and a cat! When I am not teaching band I usually am cheering on the Green Bay Packers, watching Star Wars, or playing disc golf!
This website is a resource for all students and parents/guardians in the band program at NMS. You will find sources of information, handouts, extra practice journals, and music recordings of concert music. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions! I am reachable by email, the BAND app, and phone. I am looking forward to working with all of the NMS band students and I can't wait to bring music back to the halls of Norris Middle School!
