The NWR Middle School Band program is under the direction of Jerry Pickering, Lyndsey Bobo, Matt McDonald, and Ben Burge. The program consists of 200+ students in grades 6-8.

The 7th & 8th Grade Bands participate in the Central Mississippi Concert Band Festival earning Superiors in Concert and Sightreading. Many students in the band program have participated in the Mississippi Bandmasters Association State Band Clinic, Capital District Honor Band Clinic, East Central Mississippi Band Directors Association Band Clinic, and the Pearl Junior High Band Clinic.

The success of our band program is due to the hard work of the administration, the parents, the community, the educators, and most importantly, our students.
