Our Ensembles

Marching Band

The Crockett Cougar Band is comprised of all Crockett high school band wind musicians, percussion studio musicians, and dance guard members. Marching band students learn the values of work ethic, time management, responsibility, organization, and teamwork throughout the entirety of their 4-year band careers. In the Fall semester the marching band begins band camp as early as the football team in late July, and from there, the semester is full of evaluations, contests, public appearances, school assemblies, and more!
