Questions concerning the program, scheduled events or grading should be directed to Mr. Dwyer. 

We are always looking for volunteers to help support our students. Those interested should contact Mrs. Wetzel, the band booster organization's president.

Just need a quick response about something? Try messaging the band's Facebook page, several community members, including Mr. Dwyer, have access to it to answer questions.


At the East Lycoming School District, we pride ourselves in offering large opportunities in a small school environment. The Hughesville Band Program is made up of multiple performing ensembles all under the direction of Mr. Dwyer. During school hours, we offer concert band, grouped by grades 5-6, 7-8 and 9-12. Outside of school hours, we offer marching band and jazz ensemble. Occasionally, opportunities come along for students to perform at special venues. Most recently in 2019, the band had the pleasure of performing at Disney's Magic Kingdom.

Elementary students are assigned one 25 minute lesson a week, while Jr./Sr. High School students attend band class every day for 50 minutes. Extra opportunities for study and performance are offered by the Lycoming County Band Director's Association as well as the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association. All extra-curricular ensembles are open to students from grades 7-12.
