The band program in Dripping Springs ISD is about more than just music and marching, although DSISD bands at all levels consistently deliver performances of the highest caliber and earn top ratings and enthusiastic praise from contest judges. Band students on the whole tend to be high achievers in academics and other extracurricular undertakings. The self-discipline and pride in excellence instilled by the band program foster habits of excellence and success that students carry with them outside of the band hall and into their lives beyond school.
The high school band program continues students’ musical education at more advanced levels, and is expanded to include Marching Band, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic and Concert Bands, Jazz Band, Percussion Class, and Color Guard.
- DSHS bands consistently earn the UIL Sweepstakes Award.
- DSHS band students have made the TMEA region, area, and all-state bands.
- DSHS band students participate in the UIL Region and State solo and ensemble contest.
