Students interested in becoming a member of the band department are encouraged to follow this simple checklist:

Dorm Orientation
Students that wish to stay in the dorms will be required to complete the HCC Boot Camp. Applying for the dorms early will ensure that your orientation date will not conflict with our annual summer band camp.

Freshmen Orientation
Entering freshmen are encouraged to take orientation from Mr. Sprayberry. This orientation class is the same as all other orientations but is offered a time that is most convenient for band students. Since band is added to schedules by the band director, you may be required to sign up for another teacher’s orientation class. Feel free to change your orientation schedule once band is added.
