High School Band is a year-long class. Students will learn sight reading, rhythm and instrumental skills through the use of performance based standards. The music department cultivates a strong and supportive family like atmosphere. We are proud to be a “safe place” for many of our students. The Southwestern Music Department is a WSMA Accredited Music School for the second year in a row! 


Students have opportunities to participate in:

  • Marching Band, Pep Band, and Jazz Band

  • SWAL Honors Band

  • SWAL Honors Choir

  • Tri-State Honors Band

  • Dorian Band

  • Dorian Choir

  • HS Solo and Ensemble

  • Music Trip

The Music Department tries to take a large trip every four years, with smaller trips every year. We also take mini trips to see musicals and concerts throughout the year.
