Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Reon

Ms. Reon

Welcome to Band at James Breckinridge Middle School

My name is Ms. Reon and I am the band director at Breckinridge. This is my first year in Roanoke and I am so excited to get to work with you all this year! I am looking forward to seeing how this band program grows and develops during the 2018-19 school year. 

I am originally from the Hampton Roads area of Virginia and I am a saxophone player. I have been playing saxophone for 12 years and played in all of the major band ensembles at Christopher Newport University during my undergraduate and graduate degrees. I love band and playing my instrument as the band world has given me some of the best experiences of my life. From playing 6 shows a day at Busch Gardens Williamsburg to marching in the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland - my experiences in band have truly changed my life.

In the Breckinridge Band we will learn more about our instruments, become better musicians, and discover what it means to be part of a group that works together to put on a great performance. My goal is to pick music that is going to challenge us technically as players, but also connects to our lives and the experiences that we share.

Please contact me at jreon@rcps.info if you have any questions about band at Breckinridge!
