The Pride of Carrollton
The Mustang Band is truly the “Pride of Carrollton”, as our organization is second to none, academically and professionally. At Creekview High School, the band program alongside the choir, orchestra, art, AP Music theory, dance, and theatre combine to make up the CHS Fine Arts Department.
The program is composed of a total enrollment of 120 students, comprised of two concert ensembles, one jazz ensemble, a percussion ensemble, musical pit orchestra, full orchestra, colorguard, winterguard and the Mustang Marching Band. Students participate in the TMEA Region 31 All-Region Bands, Jazz Bands and Orchestras, as well as the TMEA All State Band. The Creekview Bands have received numerous sweepstakes awards and superior ratings at the University Interscholastic League (UIL) Contests in its history.
Since its inaugural year, the Mustang Band has participated in the UIL Area marching contest and performed in numerous Bands of America Marching Contests and has participated at the Texas State Marching Band Contest. The Creekview Wind symphony was selected as a “National Winner” for their 2009, 2017 recordings by the Foundation for Music Education in their National Honors Competition.

Excellence in All We Do
Our personality is defined by confidence, devotion, ambition, and compassion. We have the drive and determination to use our opportunities to the fullest and exceed our potential. We are a diverse group of accepting individuals that pull together to ultimately create a large family. The fun we have is enjoyed frequently in ways that are inclusive and positive for both individuals and the collective program. Through hard work and dedication, the early mornings and long nights we commit allow us to grow closer, have fun, and make lasting memories.
The mission of the Creekview High School Band is to create a fun environment where we compete at a professional level while accepting and caring for one another. We are passionately driven to succeed through focus and productivity. By demonstrating consistency in performance, the Mustang Band is setting the standard through achievement in which it develops a healthy team concept, strong individuals, and exceptional leaders. The band experience should be one that leaves a lasting character impression and one that facilitates lessons that apply to life in general. The Creekview Band most importantly does not lose sight of its PRIDE:
Perseverance / Respect / Integrity / Discipline / Excellence
The band's culture statement defines what the band wants to be known for: campus and community leaders who embrace change, thrive on creativity and achieve goals. The band\'s mission is to promote excellence in music, to build trust in each other, to set a high standard of performance in our region, area and state and to develop character and integrity in every individual as a whole.
