Mission Statement of the Heritage High School Band Program

We believe the Heritage High School Band was developed to address the following needs of our students:

Cultural: To develop an appreciation and understanding of music through the study and performance of the highest quality of literature available.

Educational: To develop musicians and performers of the highest caliber, as well as inspire students who wish to pursue a career in or associated with music.

Service: To lend color and atmosphere to student body events while promoting and enhancing the dignity of Heritage High School through traditional and non-traditional on and off campus events.

Recreational: To provide an opportunity for students to experience a worthy use of leisure time, as well as provide an emotional outlet and social interaction.

Character: To develop within each of our members a strong appreciation for the six pillars of character – Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship – and to see each student strive to conduct their lives in line with these characteristics.
