Band » Home



Band is more than just playing an instrument; it is immersing your child in a culture of successful students and teachers who care about education. It challenges each child to use the creative side of his or her brain while, at the same time, learning a foreign language…MUSIC.

All of the current data clearly states that students involved in music education academically out perform their non-musical counterparts.

Every destination starts with a decision to embark on a journey. The Gilbert Intermediate School band program is the start of an instrumental music journey that can last a lifetime!

We can’t promise that every child will be a musical prodigy, but we can promise they will learn, laugh, and grow along the way.
