About the Symphonic Band

The Symphonic Band is the second competing ensemble at Crockett High School and is under the direction of Mr. Garrison. Students in the Symphonic Band participate in the UIL Concert and Sight-reading Contest, and the UIL Solo and Ensemble Contest. Symphonic Band students will receive instruction with an emphasis on the fundamentals and skills needed to advance to the Wind Ensemble while working to enhance musicianship and ensemble skills. Members are assigned solos, small ensembles, weekly sectionals, and numerous performance evaluations which are fundamental in their development as musicians.

Google Classroom

We will be transitioning to Google Classroom for the Symphonic Band. Please follow the instructions to download Google Classroom to your iPhone, or Android. If you do not have a phone, you will still be able to do assignments on a computer at home (instructions), or on the iPad in the directors office.

Practice Sheets

Students in Symphonic Band are required to turn in practice sheets. Currently students only need to practice 45 minutes and get a parent signature in order to get full credit.
