The Tex Hill Tiger Band program consists of three Advanced Bands and nine Beginner Band classes so there is a place for every student to belong. The Tiger Band is an organization that has a family atmosphere, where students take ownership and feel they have a place to belong. We have over 350 members of our Band Family!
We believe that Band not only teaches the skill of playing an instrument, but also teaches skills that students can use in the real world. We want our Band students to be creative and to set goals and figure out ways to reach these goals while working as a team. These skills will prove to be invaluable in everything that they do and are so needed in today's workforce.
The Tiger Band has a reputation of excellence around the State. Our Advanced Bands are consistent "Sweepstakes" Award winners at UIL Competition every year. Both Symphonic and Honors Band received "Superior" and "Best in Class" Awards at the Alamo Showcase of Music, Lone Star Showcase of Music, and the Buc Days Showcase of Music Competitions. Honors Band was also awarded "Overall Outstanding" Band for all three of those contests. In 2015, the Tiger Band was a TMEA Region, Area, and State Finalist. In 2017, they were a TMEA Region and Area Finalist.
In 2017, the Tiger Band was selected to perform at the Tobin Center for the first YOSA Invitational.
In the spring of 2020 The Honors band was invited to perform at The Midwest Clinic in Chicago Illinois. This is the first Concert band in San Antonio to receive this prestigious invitation.
We believe that Band teaches students to be well-rounded individuals and develops camaraderie and friendships that are so important in these middle school years.
We believe that a good work ethic and fun go hand in hand so you will be good at your instrument, and you will have FUN EVERYDAY!
