Welcome to Wheaton North Band

We are students, we are leaders, we are musicians; together in academic study, performance, percussion, jazz, or marching programs, we all have a common goal. Our mission is to discover who we are and who we want to be. We strive for musical excellence. Our high expectations compel us to promote the art form of music. We continually establish and perpetuate traditions through which we develop strong relationships and mature. Musical performance helps us grow more confident and develop pride in ourselves and our program. Music helps us develop our emotions and express who we are; even after the music ends. Music is what we love and that’s why we play it.

our vision

We are a family of Wheaton North students and leaders unified by music. Through music, we grow and discover ourselves. The power and emotions we experience as musicians compel us to strive for excellence and continue the Wheaton North Band legacy. We all have one thing in common – passion. Our passion for the music and desire for success are what shapes us into who we are; when words and actions fail, music speaks.

To establish structured, engaged, and safe environment that encourages student musicians to communicate their inner creativity through musical expression, reflecting the axiom: Musicians do only 2 things:

  1. They know the notes completely.
  2. They care about how the notes sound.
