*Band Placement Auditions: 

Please note that auditions are optional for 8th Grade students. 8th Grade students who do not audition will be placed in a band course based on middle school director recommendations. 8th Grade students do not need to sign up in advance for an audition time. They should arrive at the Walton Band Room between 5:30-6p on their audition day. Questions? Contact Mr. Johns at christopher.johns@waltonband.org


What is the difference between band and marching band?

Band is taken during the school day as an elective in your academic schedule. Marching Band is a co-curricular activity. You don’t have to march to take band, but you must take band class to march unless you are in Color Guard.

Our marching band traveled recently to Washington, DC where they marched and performed in the National Cherry Blossom Parade. They were the featured band and scored a spot on Good Morning America! Watch the clip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOuKOmKIUd8
