• Welcome, everyone, to the 2023-2024 school year!  

    Students enrolled in the Robert L Horbelt Intermediate School have the opportunity to join one of Barnegat's biggest teams - The Band!  This year, in addition to weekly lessons, students will have the opportunity to perform in the jazz band, as well as participate in the band club after school.

    During the week of September 18, I will visited all of the 5th and 6th grade classes to drum up (pun intended) interest and leave interested students with information on joining the band.  Like last year, anyone can be part of the RLHIS band, even if they have never played an instrument before or took a year off.  At Horbelt, students can choose to play the following instruments:

    Woodwinds: Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Alto Saxophone

    Brass: Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Baritone

    Percussion: Snare Drum/Bells, Keyboard

    If your child is interested in joining the band, please complete the second page of the packet they received and return it to me. If they have misplaced the packet, please click here to download it. 

    All students in the band will receive weekly lessons during their special.  Additionally, we will meet as a band during their scheduled OSS times.

    If, any time, you have any questions, please feel free to  email or call me at the Horbelt School (609-660-7500 X18192).


    Looking forward to a fantastic year!
