  • CHARGER MARCHING BAND

    During marching season, all bands and the color guard are combined to form the Charger Marching Band.

    Spring Training is designed to welcome all incoming freshmen, new band students and returning band members. Students will attend each day. Summer Band Camp will be from August 1st through August 24th.

    The Band Directors will distribute schedules for the students to take home. Attendance at these rehearsals

    is required of every student.

    Color Guard and Percussion students will be given a practice schedule for the summer months.

    Their schedule may differ from the instrumentalists.

    The Charger Band performs at the ten regularly scheduled varsity high school football games as well as

    any play-off games; the band travels by school buses to all games. On game days that fall on a Thursday

    or Friday, students will report to the band hall after school. They normally will have a short rehearsal,

    after which they will eat a pre-game meal provided by the BPA.

  • CONCERT BANDS

    The concert bands will perform at a Holiday concert in early December. There is usually a pre-spring break

    concert in March and an end of year concert in May. All concert bands will perform. The Jazz Band,Winter Percussion and Winter Guard also have concerts and events during the spring semester.

  • JAZZ BAND

    Jazz is an extracurricular activity in the Spring. All students who wish to participate will be assigned to one

    of 3 jazz bands, based upon audition results (Jazz I, Jazz II or Jazz III).

     

    The Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) holds auditions for honor ensembles each year. Audition requirements and dates will be announced when they become available (generally late July). Auditions

    usually begin mid-November. All 1st and 2nd band students are required to participate in TMEA Band

    Auditions. Payment of a registration fee of $10 to the directors is required.

     

  • INDIVIDUAL SOLO AND ENSEMBLE COMPETITIONS

    The University Interscholastic League (UIL) sponsors both individual and group music competitions

    for high school band students. This event is usually held in February. Competitions include individual

    solos as well as ensembles. All students are required to perform at Solo and Ensemble. The exact

    performance requirements will be at the discretion of your student’s individual band director.

  • PRIVATE LESSONS FOR STUDENTS

    Private lessons with a competent instructor are strongly encouraged for all Churchill band students.

    Private lessons are taken at each student’s discretion. Some teachers teach lessons on campus during

    band classes. These teachers are screened first through the NEISD Fine Arts office and then by the

    Churchill Band staff. We make every effort to secure qualified instructors to teach every instrument.

    If you are looking for a private instructor, go to the: Private Lessons link enclosed to download a list of

    instructors that may be available.
