Welcome to the Colby Bands!

The Colby Band program provides instrumental music instruction to 6th through 12th grade students in the Colby School District. Students are given the opportunity to grow as musicians through lessons, activities, trips, and a wide range of performing ensembles. Those ensembles include the Beginner Band (6th Grade), Middle School Band (7th/8th Grade), High School Band (9th-12th Grade), Marching Band (8th-12th Grade), Pep Band (9th-12th Grade), Show Band (9th-12th Grade), and many other smaller ensembles that perform throughout the year.

"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything."


"To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible and inconceivable."
