About Middletown Marching Band
For years, the Middletown Marching Band has had a tradition of success and superior performance and has qualified and competed in State Finals each of the last 19 years. This past year was no exception, as the 2021 marching band won countless awards as well as a Superior rating at State Finals. Middletown Marching Band is made of the finest students at Middletown High School as well as a caring and talented staff.
We want every student to have the experience of being a part of the marching band. It is truly a unique opportunity that offers so much to the students who choose to participate. Marching band not only offers great musical benefits, but it is an activity that teaches discipline, pride, leadership, self-confidence, and a positive work ethic. Our members become part of a TRUE tradition of excellence, and enjoy a rich experience competing and performing throughout the state of Ohio. ALSO, MARCHING BAND IS A LOT OF FUN! We feel that it is an enjoyable, positive experience for all those involved.
Band Camp is designed to be an enjoyable and enriching learning and social experience. Band Camp is a time in which we learn a great deal of our contest show and build the team aspects necessary to be successful. Because of this, band camp is mandatory for all those who wish to participate in marching band.
