Welcome to the Band program at Marple Newtown High School. We are an organization with a long history of excellence. While our year is, at times, a busy one, students and parents will have a rewarding and enjoyable high school experience through the Marple Newtown Band program. The ensembles of the Band Program include: The Marple Newtown Tiger Marching Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band, Indoor Percussion Ensemble and Indoor Guard.

This group of young adults are exceptional students, with a grade point average that hovers around ninety percent, which is well above the school average. A large portion of graduating band members go on to participate in college bands (many collecting scholarship money to do so). Other alumni have been members of the James Madison Marching Royal Dukes, Penn State Blue Band, Duke University Marching Band, University of Michigan Marching Band, Notre Dame Band of the Fighting Irish, and the West Chester University Marching Band to name a few. In addition, many other former band members are now presently music teachers, and professional musicians around the country. I myself am a graduate of the class of 1991 and our Middle School Director is a graduate of the class of 2004.

The Instrumental Music Program at Marple Newtown has always had a fine tradition of success, and now you have the opportunity to continue that tradition at the High School level.
