The Pattonville High School music program is recognized annually as one of the best in the state of Missouri. The band, orchestra and chorus programs have collected many accolades and honors at the local, regional, state and national levels.

The music department currently supports Jazz Band, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, and several levels of orchestras, different level choirs, a jazz ensemble, a competitive marching band, and numerous instrumental and vocal chamber ensembles.

Every school year, hundred of students participate in one of the many programs offered by the Pattonville music department. The programs offer multiple levels of bands, choirs and orchestras as well as instruction in music theory, piano and guitar.

The size of the music department allows the school to offer an experience that meets many ability levels in grades 9-12.

Teachers like band director Ms. Sara Deutschmann dedicate a lot of time working with the students in the classrooms located below the theatre.

“I love being down here, it’s always very safe,” she said. “Of all 23 years of being here, I’ve always felt very safe. This place feels like home to a lot of people and I feel like we live here.”
