Congratulations on your decision to be a part of the Coppell Band.

 

Band is one of the most enjoyable and spirited high school organizations, and it is arguably the hardest-working organization and most award-winning in Coppell ISD.

In Band at Coppell, the physical demands of being a performer are high. Through marching band, students will become physically fit by exercising on a daily basis. All these routines make us stronger physically and mentally and give us a great advantage over our competitors late in the season.

 

To remain musically “fit”, we strongly encourage private lessons throughout the summer and during school. This experience is one that will strengthen your musical abilities beyond what we’re able to do in class. The one-on-one time you spend with your private teacher will aid in your growth and development as a competent, individual musician.

 

If you have interests in other areas (athletics, clubs, organizations), we welcome you to do both. You can make it work in your schedule, and we’re happy to help you realize your goals by being a member of multiple teams. We currently have Band students in football, theater, choir, track, tennis, swimming, cross country, basketball, and more. No student at CHS, CHS9, or NTH@C will be made to choose one activity over the other – being a part of the Coppell HS Community is important, and your contributions are valued. Please email us with any questions you have.
