Independence HS Band Philosophy

It will be the goal of the IHS Band program to cultivate a life-long appreciation for music in each student.  The IHS Band will foster musical, leadership, social, emotional, time management, and teamwork skills to carry students successfully into their future.  Students will not be used to make music. . .music will be used to make the students.  This band program will be “A Class Act”.
