Mr. Jason Noyes, the director of bands at Bryan High School at Bryan ISD, has been named the new head band director at Aubrey High School as announced by Aubrey ISD Superintendent Dr. David Belding. He replaces Ron Chapman, who has retired after 12 years as the AHS band director.
Mr. Noyes brings 15 years of experience as a music educator at the school district level to his new role. He has a resume of building and maintaining, high-achieving band programs and teaching in a variety of large and small ensemble settings.
“The Aubrey ISD band program has a long history of success,” Dr. Belding said. “It was very important to us that we conduct a thorough statewide search to find the best director for Aubrey ISD. During the interview and vetting process, Mr. Noyes proved himself to be an excellent musician, teacher, and director of a comprehensive instrumental music program. He is well respected throughout the state as a teacher of music. I am excited that Mr. Noyes will be joining our three current directors, and I’m very confident that our students will achieve excellence in performance and experience with Mr. Noyes’ guidance.”
While at Bryan HS, Mr. Noyes led all aspects of daily program operations and managed all administrative activities.

“I am extremely excited to be joining the Aubrey ISD,” Mr. Noyes said. “I am looking forward to continuing the success of the Aubrey Band Program as well as building a culture of unity. We will focus on inspiring, nurturing and empowering all of our students to reach their full potential in and out of the classroom.”
