We are so happy to have you as a member of this program! Our vision is for the entire band and guard community to work together to develop life-applicable skills and lifelong memories in a safe, respectful, and engaging environment. Music inspires us. It provides us with experiences and memories that we will never forget. Add teamwork, motivation, and passion, and this program will go as far as we want it to go. The staff and I are ready to continue this amazing journey towards success, and we want YOU to be a part of it.
