Mr. Jeremy Stevens
Welcome to the 2017-2018 Hillsboro Junior High School Bands homepage!
I am Mr. Stevens, the Director of Bands at Hillsboro School District #3. 2019-2020 will be my second year in this position. I am from Peru, IL, and a graduate of LaSalle-Peru Township High School (go Cavaliers!). After high school, I went to Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI (go Broncos!) for my undergraduate degree. During my time in college, I was a member of the 7-time world champion drum and bugle corps, The Cavaliers (see the picture on the left).
In addition to being Director of Bands at Hillsboro, I am active in the marching arts around the Midwest. I write drill for bands and am also an adjudicator for marching band competitions around Illinois. The summer of 2019 was my fourth year on the brass educational staff at The Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps. This winter was also my third season on the educational staff as music caption head of Chromium Indoor Winds, the Winter Guard International Winds Independent Open 2017, 2018, and 2019 Champions.
Please see my "Helpful Resources" page for all sorts of good stuff, like music, recordings, calendars, and handouts!
I am looking forward to a great 2019-2020 school year for all of the bands!
