Welcome to Millbrook Bands

At Millbrook High School our Band Program’s mission is to educate young people through music performance. Our time together will not be limited to simply learning about music, although that is our primary purpose. By your involvement in these organizations you will mature as a musician, student and person. The curriculum is cyclical in nature; while there is similarity from year to year, the comprehensive program encompasses four years of study. Individual development of character, esteem, teamwork, leadership traits and group accomplishment can be additional rewards of participation in the band program at Millbrook High School.
