Yutan Public Schools Instrumental Music
About the Yutan Band Program
Yutan Public Schools are dedicated to fostering a lifelong passion for music by offering students a life changing music education experience. Yutan Public Schools band program consists of a beginning 5th grade band, 6th grade Cadet band, 7th-8th grade junior high symphonic band, 9th-12th grade high school wind ensemble, as well as the combined 7th-12th grade Pride of the Tribe Pep/Marching band, complete with one director. Collectively the bands give upwards of 50+ public performances throughout the year. We begin the recruitment process in the spring of 4th grade and every student gives instrumental music a try. We have had great success with a good balanced instrumentation as well as high numbers; almost one-hundred percent of the beginning 5th Grade class will participate in band. 6th grade and junior high band attend a middle level, large ensemble, and solo/small ensemble contest each year and almost every entry earns a superior rating. All grade levels have the opportunity to attend at least one honor band every year.
