Band Program

Centerville Schools Band Program

The Centerville Band Program has an enrollment of over 550 student musicians combined in middle school and high school.  The high school curricular program consists of three concert bands which meet for one class period, five days a week.  Curricular classes are also offered in music theory and jazz improvisation.  In addition, the band program is proud of its extracurricular offerings.  The Marching Band, known nationally as the “Centerville Jazz Band,” competes at a variety of contests throughout Ohio, the Midwest, and the nation.  Students may also be involved in one of our four jazz ensembles, all of which meet entirely after school.  Centerville also offers Winter Drumline and Winter Guard programs that complete both locally and nationally.  Basketball Pep Band (BBPB) and Pit Orchestra for musicals are also offered as extracurricular ensembles for band students.

The Centerville Band Program has a unique philosophy for rehearsal and performance. It is simply stated: Be Your Best!!  Success, as we measure it, is striving to be the best we possibly can, every day, every practice, and every performance. The only band we want to beat is our own performance of yesterday. Being your best is a measurement of success that can be achieved by everyone.

The concert ensembles – Wind Symphony/Symphonic Band/Concert Band – are the foundation of the Centerville Band Program. Explore below for more information on the many varied co-curricular ensembles and other music classes that are offered to students to supplement the basic concert band experience.
