The Sound of Thunder


The band program at Lake Region High School offers students who have learned and those who wish to learn a wind or percussion instrument the opportunity to learn more about music through the study and performance of wind band literature.  Each class also covers a wide range of knowledge and skill based units designed to cover music history, music theory, performance fundamentals, and large and small ensemble skills which culminate in a complete musical experience.
