Our band program offers many opportunities to get involved year-round!

Our band program includes a 5th grade band curriculum for all 5th grade students.

We offer an after school jazz band and jazz combos.

In the fall, our 7-12 grade students participate in marching band for football games and a pep band for basketball. 

Every December, we will put on a Christmas concert featuring all of our groups and ensembles.

In the spring our 7-12 band will be split into a 7-8 and a 9-12 band. We perform at most of the large scale functions on campus including a full Veteran’s Day program.

7-12 students also learn the basics of individual musicianship by performing a solo for their instrument in front of the class, at a concert, or during a district Solo and Ensemble event.

We cap our year off with a spring concert featuring every group.
