james attebery

James Attebery (he/him/his) is the Director of Bands and Guitar Studies at Marana High School.

“With Mr. Attebery, it isn’t just music and lyrics. It’s an attitude. He always stresses that when we put on that MHS Band t-shirt, we don’t represent just a band, but also our community. We owe it to everyone to be the best that we can be—on and off the field, in and out of school, in every part of life.”

What Instrument do you WISH you knew how to play?

I wish I could play all of them much better.

Best piece of musical advice you've been given?

Not musical advice, rather professional work ballance... "When it's time to go home, leave work at work. Spend your time being 100% focused on your family."
