Our Philosophy

System + Spirit = Success

The two most important attributes of a successful band are a system and spirit. A system is a way of doing things. It represents the total structure of our band, including: organization, procedures, activities, philosophies, teaching methods, marching and playing style and policies.

Spirit represents how individual band members respond to the system. It includes practice habits, positive attitudes, mental discipline and work ethic. When the system is followed and good spirit is in place, the result is success and its byproducts, including pride, enthusiasm, loyalty, discipline and dedication.
