Paragould Arkansas Music
On October 10, many people watched a live stream of the Paragould High School Marching Band's performance at the end of a school year, as Bands of America set up live feeds from three states across the country. One of those bands was the first ever Arkansas B-band to perform at Paramount High School in Paragsould, Arkansas. The world-class program has been active in the state for more than a decade, regularly holding events in school districts in the region, including the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith, Arkansas State University, and the US Army Corps of Engineers, to name a few.
We hope to expand the programme further by increasing the number of teachers, providing more tools to schools and providing "A" grants to students who participate in public relations. We offer free outreach events where students meet some of the best guitarists in the world.
The Bluegrass Monday Concert Series brings together musicians from across the country to promote the musical heritage of the Ozark Mountains and its history and culture. While bluegrass music has been a popular music style in the region for many years, the concert series promotes the musical heritage in and around the Ozarks Mountains. The first of many opportunities for local bluesgrass musicians to participate in Blue Grass Monday will take place at Terry's Cafe after each concert.
In Paragould, Mobley teaches brass and woodwind classes and conducts marching music, and Mr. Williams conducts marches. This team teaches the Junior High and Intermediate Bands and is in the High Jazz Band and teaches drums from the High School Jazz Band and the Junior High Band. They teach junior high / intermediate bands in Para. In the Gould, Mr. Serna teaches wind classes for beginners, clarinet and percussion as well as the youth, middle and high school band.
This program aims to become a center for guitar activities in northeastern Arkansas. We aim to build a community of guitarists, musicians, teachers, students and community members in Paragould.
During his time at Nettleton Schools, Mr. Serna led percussion ensembles, was a state percussionist, earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education, played in the Arkansas State Symphony Orchestra, and was a state-certified percussionist. The Symphonic Band was one of the most successful bands in the history of Paragould High School. Our amazing superintendent, Mrs. Debbie Smith, has always been the band's biggest supporter. I think without them we would not have had a national championship or even a competitive season, but I would be very proud of our band and their achievements in the last years.
I also asked Richie Williams, the director of Paragould, to write me about his most unusual year in the marching arts. Williams attended the University of Arkansas, where he studied trumpet with the legendary Richard Jorgensen, who was a member of the Arkansas State Symphony Orchestra and the Arkansas High School Symphonic Band in 1976. Voxitatis will broadcast live from the Marching Arts Center on Saturday, March 18, at 7: 30 p.m.
Mobley studied at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, AR, where his main instrument was the trumpet. He received a full scholarship to continue his education and passion for music at Arkansas State University. Mr. Serna received a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education and a Master of Music in the Department of Musical Arts from the Arkansas University of Science and Technology in Fort Worth, Texas. I grew up in Jonesboro, N.C., where I attended Nettleton Schools and joined the band as a member of Grant High School Symphonic Band. I earned my master's and then my bachelor's degree.
Mr. Serna is a well-trained drummer and has performed as a member of the Nettleton High School Symphonic Band, the Jonesboro Symphony Orchestra and the Arkansas State University Orchestra.
He has also been a member of the Arkansas State University Orchestra, the Jonesboro Symphony Orchestra, and the University of Arkansas Orchestra. He is also an associate professor in the Department of Music at the College of Arts and Sciences and the author of several books on the history of music in Arkansas. In addition to his work as a musician, record producer and composer, his records have been the subject of numerous television and radio documentaries as well as radio and television commercials. The State of Arkansas "is a collection of stories about the history, culture, history and history of the state in music.
The Arkansas Discovery Network, funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization with the mission of providing Arkansas youth with innovative learning in discovery.
The Paragould Pride Marching Band was ranked 7th in the nation at the 2017 US Bands National Championship and is a member of the National Association of Marching Bands (NAMM). The programme also offers students the opportunity to present their musical talents to a national audience. The band has participated in national competitions such as the US National Band Championships and the National Championships of the American Band Association. In 2013, the band began their first year of participation in National American Music Month and was named Arkansas' best school band by NIMM for the first time in its history.
