Welcome to the SLP Band program! Every student and family is an integral part to our success. In band and world drumming, your child will be well-cared for, will improve musically and will become more well-rounded through music. Find information below about each class/ensemble.
Some information about Mr. Schmitz:
Before coming to St. Louis Park in 2011, I taught four years of junior high school band in Shakopee. I also taught middle school band and elementary music in Virginia for three years and in Prior Lake for one year. On the side, I was the assistant director of the Shakopee High School Marching Sabers for two years, worked at various summer marching band camps and taught 9-12 summer school advanced music classes. In my free time, I play in my church’s rock band and an adult community band, explore new restaurants, go to movies, bike, camp, travel and spend time with my family and dogs.
Again, I welcome you to a new year in the St. Louis Park Band program. There are many exciting things in the works for the year!
Mr. Steve Schmitz, Director of Bands and World Drumming
