Our Concert Band program utilizes a sectional approach to music education. Students are divided among four music instructors for woodwinds, upper brass, lower brass and percussion to receive specialized attention in a small group setting. When ready, students are then combined for a full band experience.

Students learn to read music and develop skills that can be applied to areas such as musical performance, composition, and improvisation. In addition to concert band, there are two auditioned groups, Jazz Band and Contemporary Music Ensemble (Rock Band), that allow students to experience a wide range of music.

In the summerof 2014, Band Director Matt Nygren and Athletics Director Cody White collaborated to form the Screamin' Eagles Pep Band. The extra-curricular activity has quickly become an important part of energizing crowds at pep rallys, football games, and occasional special events. Mr. Nygren also resurrected an old version of the fight song, played after every touchdown, that was written years ago by Fine Arts Department Chair Jenny Oldham.
