    About the Class

    The Dripping Springs Middle School Band is an active and very prestigious organization, which has set very high standards of excellence.  These can only be maintained when each member resolves to do his or her best to constantly improve.
    1.  Participation in band provides a richly rewarding activity in terms of fellowship, healthful recreation, and personal gratification.
    2.  Although band requires time for individual practice, students do have plenty of time to enjoy a wide variety of other co-curricular activities and are able to maintain excellent scholastic averages.
    3.  Since many students choose to be in band in conjunction with athletics and other extra-curricular activities, schedules are carefully planned so that there are only minimal conflicts.  There are no restrictions in choosing to do both, and any conflicts that do arise will be worked out on an individual basis.
    4.  Members of the band organization are proud to be a part of a superior program.  The band hopes to make the student body, faculty, and administration of Dripping Springs Middle School equally proud of the program.   It is with this spirit that another exciting school year begins.
