Marching Band

Marching Band

9, 10, 11, 12

Length of Course: Semester *Prerequisite


Known as the Black and Gold Brigade, each Fall semester the marching band presents an intense, choreographed musical experience staged on a football field. Woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments supported by dance and movement using flags and other props are used to create a theatre-like production in the stadium. Students perform at all home football games, select away games, and parades, as well as pep rallies, boys' and girls' basketball games, and other community events. The musical athleticism of marching band students is equal to those achieved by varsity athletes. They perform, compete, and are adjudicated in state, regional, and national events through the Southern California School and Band Association (SCSBOA), the Western Band Association (WBA), and Bands of America (BOA).


Marching Band rehearses after school and on weekends, learning the value of excellence, while developing life skills including organization, discipline, teamwork, and leadership. Through Marching Band students create friendships, talents, and standards of excellence, while fostering an environment in which they can grow, laugh, learn, and meet challenges as a group. Physical fitness skills are emphasized, and this course receives P. E. credit. Course may be taken more than once for credit.


*Students are strongly recommended to enroll in Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, or String Ensemble concurrently
