The MCHS Band is a performance-based course that is designed to continue the development of the technical proficiency of the student on his or her chosen instrument. Students must be accomplished instrumental players in order to participate as deemed so by the director. The student will be challenged by advanced high school literature. Concerts are a requirement of the course and failure to attend will result in a failing grade for the quarter. Members of the MCHS Band also participate in the following ensembles: MCHS Marching Aces and Aces Pep Band. Marching band rehearsals are held both after school and evenings during marching season in addition to one week of Band Camp each summer, which is a requirement of the course. Color Guard members enroll in band 1st semester only during marching band season.
