Hawk Band

About Hawk Band

Director: Mike Holden

The objective of Hawk Band is to continue the development of fundamentals introduced in Beginning Band. In addition to strong fundamentals, students will develop effective practice strategies and continue to improve on their ensemble skills. Students will perform a variety of music throughout the year including contemporary band literature, marches, multi-cultural music, and pop music. Students are able to learn an instrument AND participate in choir.


  • Students receive a weekly instrument-specific technique class on a rotating basis. The rotating schedule ensures that students are not pulled from the same class each week and only miss a class 1 time every quarter. Click here to learn more about the objectives of technique classes.
  • In addition to their technique class, students attend several weekly full ensemble rehearsals where all of the band instruments are combined. The Hawk Band rehearses as a full ensemble 3 times per week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 8:00 AM. Click here to learn more about the objectives of full ensemble rehearsals.
