Homedale Marching Band
- 7th - 12th grade
- Performs at home and away football games
- Performs at five marching competitions, September through November (most are on Saturdays)
- Outside rehearsals on Tuesday (4:00 pm - 6:00 pm) and Friday (9:00 am - 12:00 pm) from September to late October. You will be excused from Tuesday rehearsals if you are on a sports team that meets during our practice time.
Can I participate in sports and band?
Yes. Most band students are also on a sports team. If you participate in sports, you can be excused from band performances that conflict with the sports schedule.
Do I have to buy my own instrument to be in band?
No. You have the option to buy or rent your own instrument, but you may also use a school-owned instrument for free.
Do I already need to know how to play an instrument?
No. We will teach you everything you need to know about reading music and playing an instrument.
I don't want to play at football games or go to marching competitions, can I still be in the class?
Yes, but you will be missing out on a lot of fun. You can complete alternate assignments in class instead of marching and playing in pep band. Send an email to Mr. Zieske firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Does it cost money to be in marching band?
No, the class is free!
