High School

Marching Band

We are about to embark on an exciting adventure and we would like for your student to join us!!! This is an exciting time for the Southern Garrett Marching Band with Mr. Jason Shaw at the helm and with new uniforms on the way! An exciting and recognizable show is being planned for the upcoming year with tunes based upon famous comic book heroes.  The students will work hard to accomplish their goals in the marching band but will gain pride and confidence in themselves to an extent that you cannot imagine while participating in this activity.  Being a part of the marching band has opened up doors for prior students to earn music scholarships and perform in collegiate marching band programs. 
         
The Southern Garrett Marching Band has a strong Booster program that raises fund for the program and enables the students to travel to band competitions and festivals both near and a little further away home.  The Boosters chaperone the band on all trips and work to provide funding for food and lodging when needed. Being a part of the Booster program allows parents to spend valuable time with their children while they are participating in an activity that serves to improve their independence, reliability and decision-making. In addition to Mr. Shaw, several talented instructors help to teach and enhance the skills of our talented students.
         
?No auditions are necessary, there is a place in the Marching Band for any student with a desire to be a part of this exciting and “new” program. We hope that you and your student will make the decision to join the Southern Garrett Marching Band!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Jason Shaw at jason.shaw@garrettcountyschools.org.
