Welcome to Mrs. Shinabarger's Classroom Page

Welcome to Band!!


Welcome to Band! My name is Mrs. Shinabarger and I am thrilled to join the Bishop McNamara community as the Band Director for 4th through 12th grade.

I attended college at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign majoring in Music Education and specializing in Percussion.

At Bishop McNamara, we offer band instruction to 4th through 12th grade students on instruments including flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, tuba, and percussion. There are also extra activities to be involved in such as pep band and jazz band. Anyone is welcome to join the program!
