Our purpose is to provide each student a comprehensive music education by teaching the skills necessary to succeed as young musicians and as young adults. Foster the development of essential character qualities including a commitment to excellence, a strong work ethic, personal integrity, leadership, and a respect for self and others. Enhance and promote Grassfield High School and the Grassfield community through the public performance of quality music. Provide a positive emotional outlet, a quality social activity, and a worthy use of free time.
We invite all students to take part in the Grassfield Band Program and all that it has to offer. We have designed the music curriculum to include something for everyone whether you play an instrument or are interested in other facets of the program, we have got a place for you!
For our students that are new to Grassfield, the band program becomes an instant family and can make a somewhat scary transition so much easier. The skills you learn in our music program to achieve quality performance levels are the same skills that will make you a successful individual. The members of the Grassfield High School Band Program are totally committed to self-discipline, individual responsibility, and excellence.
Our band program is committed to teaching students to become better musicians and guiding them to develop as into young adults.
