Hello and welcome to Unicorn Country!

My name is Dolores Jimenez. I have been teaching band at New Braunfels Middle School for 25 years. I am the Head Director of The NBMS Unicorn Band. I am from San Antonio but I have been living in New Braunfels for the past 19 years. My husband teaches at Church Hill Middle School. I have a daughter in her first year teaching I have a son who is in his 3nd year at Texas State and and is studying engineering.  I graduated from Southwest Texas State University, Go Bobcats! I love teaching band and being apart of the Mighty Unicorn Band program, Go Unicorns!

Please visit the Varsity Page or Beginner Page for more information.

We hope your child is having an enjoyable and successful experience in the NBMS Band. As a member of The NBMS Varsity Band, your child will be participating in several projects, concerts, and a UIL contest. The following is a list of dates and activities that your child will be involved in this next semester:

  • Jan. 6 - March 6 Weekly UIL Varsity Band sectional
  • Jan 13 - Feb. 13 UIL Music Pass Off Project
  • Feb 11 Pre UIL Concert at NBHS
  • Feb tbabefore or after school UIL full band rehearsal
  • March 5 or 6UIL Concert & Sight Reading Contest
  • April tba Solo & Ensemble Contest
  • May tba NBMS or NBHS auditions
  • May 16 Spring Concert

To prepare the students for these various projects, performances and contest it will be necessary for the Varsity Band to pass-off their UIL music and begin UIL sectionals. 

*The UIL pass-off project consists of each student meeting individually with their director several times either before school, after school, during lunch or advisory.The students will be testing their UIL music for a pass-off grade. 

*Sectionals will be once a week beginning the week of January 6, 2020, and will go through the week of March 6, 2020

These sectionals are a very important part of the student’s musical development and understanding of the contest music. For the students to achieve the needed level of proficiency and to ensure a positive musical experience, attendance at all sectionals is required. Students will receive a grade for their attendance at sectionals. We understand that things may come up so every effort will be made to accommodate any conflicts, however, all missed sectionals must be made up. Sectionals will meet as follows:

Monday        7:10 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.         Flute

Monday        3:35 p.m.- 4:35 p.m.          Bass Clar / Tuba / Percussion

Tuesday        7:10 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.         Trumpet / Clarinet 

Wednesday 7:10 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.        Sax / French Horn

Thursday       7:10 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.         Euphonium / Trombone / Bassoon

I would like to thank you for your continued support and cooperation of the NBMS Band Program. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 627-6387 or djimenez@nbisd.org.
