The band program at LHN is designed to provide students with a balanced study of music through performance in band. Ensemble and solo activities are designed to develop elements of musicianship including: tone production, technical skills, intonation, music reading skills, listening skills, analyzing music, and studying historically significant styles of literature. In addition, students perform, with expression and technical accuracy, a large and varied repertoire of developmentally appropriate concert band music and regularly evaluate the performances of others and themselves.
Performance groups include marching band, pep band, jazz band, concert band, and small ensembles. The group performs for all home football games, the LHN Christmas concert, spring concert and regularly tours throughout Texas and the United States. Past tours have included locations such as Chicago, Little Rock, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego, San Antonio, Seattle, St. Louis, and New York City. In addition, the group is involved in TAPPS, TPSMEA, and ATSSB activities, to provide an outlet for individual and group competition.
