China Spring High School 
Cougar Band

We believe music exposes the individual to concepts of lasting cultural values; such as beauty, self expression, discipline, responsibility, and a positive contribution to a larger good.

Music, and band in particular, is an experience like no other offered in the total school spectrum.  It teaches, not only along analytical, scientific, or even purely communicative lines, but at a deeper realm where expression is achieved.  Band accomplishes this, not in the framework and support of language, but at a level beyond that which the written, spoken, or even drawn word can achieve.  Band accomplishes this through the unique self expression of music.

With this in mind we strive to develop student musicians as individuals and as members of an ensemble, whose mission is to represent themselves and their community through excellence in performance.

“We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”
