band 2012We have a wonderful band program, where the kids work hard and have fun learning about music and performance.

 

From the Football Stadium to the Fine Arts Center, Allendale Bands work hard at having fun, and have fun working hard.  Our Award winning groups and our "GRAMMY" Signature School Award winning Music Department is dedicated in training young musicians to pursue excellence and to give back to the community with high quality and entertaining performances.  Through hard work comes the artistic pleasure of being able to express yourself through your instrument - a reward that can last a lifetime.

  • Marching Band

  • Wind Ensemble
  • Jazz Band
  • Guitar I
  • Guitar II
