as well as marched in the Tournament of Roses Parade. He has conducted ensembles at CBDNA conferences, presented
at TBA and TMEA and has had bands perform at the UIL State Marching Contest. In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Jeremy serves as the college band liaisonfor the Cotton Bowl Athletic Association and the College

If you would enjoy performing great music in a non-competitive atmosphere where you can create life-long friendships, then the Apache Band program is for you!

The Apache Band is open to all students who qualify by audition. The band program as a whole performs at a large number of campus, athletic, and community events. As a member of one of our ensembles you will participate in one of the most exciting and diverse organizations at TJC, taking advantage of musical and social opportunities unparalleled in any other college activity.
