Thinking about joining band in high school? The Forest High School Band has a place for YOU! We hope you’ll explore our web site to learn more about our band program and everything we do that makes us unique. We have put together this page to help you reach an informed decision about making band a part of your high school experience.
If you ask most current band students, they will probably tell you they couldn’t imagine what high school would have been like without having been in band. High school band is more than just playing your instrument, it’s more than a class, and it’s more than a big group of friends. It’s an opportunity to be a valuable part of an organization that is committed to showcasing incredible musical talent, serving as musical representatives of Forest High School and doing all this while having a great time with your closest friends. Not to mention, band teaches you valuable personal skills like self-discipline and time management in a way that almost no other high school course can. It’s a great learning experience that just happens to be a lot of FUN as well!
