Performing Ensembles

Marching Band

Our marching band, percussion, and color guard students rehearse regularly after school to prepare a field show for competition and football games during the fall semester. Students are required to be in advanced band or auxiliary band to join marching band.

Parade Band

Marching band students also compete in parade band, but for those who cannot commit the time for marching band, parade band is another option. Enrollment in any performance music class is required.

Advanced Band

This ensemble prepares literature during class time for a fall and spring concert for friends and family. This ensemble also performs in the spring semester at various festivals, and closes the year with a performance at graduation in June. Prior experience is required to join this ensemble, or an audition will be required.

Intermediate Band

Intermediate band is a class for students to better their playing ability, learn to play a second instrument, or learn to play an instrument for the first time. Anyone interested may join without audition, but be prepared to perform in concerts and parades.

Jazz Band

This ensemble performs several times throughout the year on campus, at festivals, and throughout the community. Enrollment in this class is by audition or teacher recommendation only. Students interested in jazz band must be enrolled in either advanced band or jazz band while performing in BOTH ensembles concurrently.

Orchestra

This ensemble is open to everyone who plays an orchestral string instrument or has never played but wants to learn. Students prepare literature for department concerts, joint concerts, and adjudication.

Winter Guard

Color guard students go indoors to compete in gyms and arenas. It is expected that students of the fall color guard continue with the winter guard program and enroll in auxiliary band class, but everyone can audition. This group competes locally on the weekends from January through March.

Winter Percussion

Percussionists go indoors to compete in gyms and arenas. It is expected that students of the fall drumline continue with the winter percussion program, but auditions are open to everyone. This group competes locally on the weekends from January through March.

Percussion Ensemble

Percussion Ensemble is a place to explore extended techniques and unique sounds through the use of modern compositions for concert and effect percussion instruments. This ensemble meets in December and May to prepare music for our fall and spring concerts.

Classical Guitar

This year I will teach guitar after school through the Pro Youth XL Program on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 3:30pm to 4:30pm. All experience levels are welcome to join and all instruction is through Zoom at this time. On this website, locate the "Zoom" tab at the top and join the class through the "Guitar" zoom link!
