- New students DO NOT need to already know how to play an instrument. We will teach you everything you need to know to be successful.
- Band is affordable for everyone. Larger, more expensive instruments are owned by the district and can be rented from Comal ISD for a minimal cost. Smaller instruments may be rented or purchased by our local music stores at low monthly rates. Do not let financial concerns discourage you from your participation. We can help you. All you need is the desire to join and we can make it work.
- There are multiple band classes throughout the day. Students will learn to play their instrument in homogeneous (like-instrument) classes and will receive excellent instruction from our dedicated staff.
- In the 6th grade, students choose band as their elective. In the 7th and 8th grade, their schedule will allow them to add new electives while still being enrolled in band. We have multiple students who are in both athletics and band and continue to Canyon Lake HS participating in band and other electives.
- Because we meet during the school day, after school commitments are minimal. We try to achieve everything during our class time. There will be the occasional after school group rehearsal to prepare for concerts.
