What we’re all about…

The Francis Howell North music program offers learning experiences in Marching Band (includes Color Guard), Concert Band, Jazz Band, Winter Guard, and a number of additional ensembles. Howell North musical ensembles are dedicated to the education and excellence of each member through the discipline of the arts. Each ensemble experience helps instill values of discipline and dedication that are carried into the community with a sense of purpose and pride. Due to an individual’s contribution to a group effort, students discover that dedication and hard work relate directly to success. This is a team effort in which we all are dependent on each other. There is a place in this music program for every interested student.

“Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions. And the actions which speak louder than the words. It is making the time when there is none.”
~ Abraham Lincoln
