Congratulations on Success at UIL!

The Clear Creek HS Band had a successful week at UIL Concert and Sight Reading Contest.


The Clear Creek Wind Symphony earned a Superior rating on stage and a Superior rating in Sight Reading. Combined with the Superior rating earned by the Wildcat Marching Band this fall makes the Clear Creek Band Program a Sweepstakes band program once again!


Additionally, the hard work of the Clear Creek Symphonic Band paid off as they earned a Superior rating on stage and an Excellent rating in Sight Reading!


Congratulations to all students on the success achieved after months of hard work!

Marching Band 2022 - Mark Your Calendars Now!

Please make sure you have the following dates and times on your calendar for all upcoming marching band events for spring, summer, and fall.


Out of necessity, we will be much less lenient with absences that conflict with contests, performances, and rehearsals this year. It is impossible for students to be successful in a performance when they are missing the people around them on whom they rely. As always, we will work with people on an individual basis as appropriate.

Try a Summer Band Camp at a University!

Summer band camps are offered by most colleges and universities as a great way for your student to enjoy playing their instrument over the summer with other student musicians from around the state/country!


Many camps give your student a chance to try living on campus, staying in the dorms with other students their age, and is a great way for your kid to experience a taste of the college/university they might be interested in after high school. Campers normally spend their time rehearsing in full ensemble, as well as small group settings giving them both the benefit of playing in a large ensemble and individualized instruction by world-class instructors! Camps end with a big performance and concerts to show off what students have worked on! Here are some great band camps for you to consider!
