Music - Mr. B

Hello, and welcome to music! My name is Mr. B, and I am the music teacher and band director at Oneida Elementary School. I see every student in Kindergarten through 5th Grade once a week for music class, where we have so much fun singing, dancing, playing instruments, listening to music, and learning about various musical concepts.

About MeMr. Jacob Boshears

I am a proud native of Scott County, and I have lived here my whole life. I attended Fairview Elementary from Pre-K to 8th Grade, and I graduated from Scott High School in 2017. I then attended Berea College in Kentucky, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in music education.


I started my teaching career here at OES in January of 2022. I love working in the Oneida Special School District, and I enjoy every part of my job. In addition to teaching general music, I direct the OES 5th Grade Band, and I assist with the Oneida High School Pride of the Tribe Marching Band. My favorite part of this job are my students, and I look forward every day to making music together!


Outside of school, I enjoy playing trumpet in the Oak Ridge Community Band, singing in the church choir, playing piano, reading, watching TV, and spending time with my family. 

5th Grade Band Information

The OES Band is open to all 5th Grade students. We meet after school on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Students in band learn the basics of playing an instrument and reading music, and the OES Band performs one to two concerts each semester.


5th Grade students can enroll in band at the beginning of the school year. During music class, all 5th graders will get a chance to try out some of the instruments, and then more information and sign up forms will be sent home with interested students during the first month of school. For additional information, please feel free to email me. I am happy to answer any questions you may have.


5th Grade Band Instruments:

  • Flute
  • Clarinet
  • Trumpet
  • Trombone
  • **Other instruments may be offered if interest and numbers allow.
