Bio for Jennifer Merry Shatley

I graduated in 2004 from UNCC majoring in Music Education with a concentration in the Horn.  

I enjoy playing in the Piedmont Prime Time Community Band as well as playing the bass recorder in the Wind Song Recorder Ensemble.

My husband Shawn and I live in Concord with our daughter Jeana and our 3 bengal cats Simba, Jade and Sebastian.

I am very excited to be the band director at KMS and look forward in continuing to help build the Kannapolis Band program.

Pep Band - Is open to any 7th and 8th grade band student.  Students are required to attend the rehearsals and have a permission slip signed by a parent/guardian.

This is a WONDERful way to get a little taste of what marching band games will be like in high school.  Students are able to attend games for free and cheer on their classmates as they compete at home games.

Students have a great time practicing for and playing at the games.  We even prepare songs for the cheerleaders to do routines to.

  • Students will play for basketball games

  • Dress code for games are khaki bottoms, green band polo and tennis shoes.

  • Students must follow all KMS school and band rules to participate.
