Welcome! Your student is now a part of the award-winning Dripping Springs Tiger Band program. This is the largest program in both the high school and the middle school, and continues to grow on a yearly basis. It is a very exciting time to be part of a dedicated and talented group that continues to meet, and exceed, the challenges it sets for itself! We look forward to excelling in the year ahead with your student’s willing participation and your support.
As band parents, you will probably have a multitude of questions. The HS band parent handbook that you can download from the link on the right has all (or at least nearly all) the answers to questions that parents of 9th-12th grade might ask – and some that you might not even think to ask (middle school parents – your own handbook and Quick FAQ are in the works, but in the interim, reading the high school handbook could be very informative). We highly encourage every parent to download and read this amazingly comprehensive and informative document (note: we are currently in the process of updating the handbook; however, much of the information is still quite useful and relevant). However, we have also pulled a few select sections of information out of the handbook and put them here on the website for quick and easy access.
As we progress through marching (high school) and concert seasons (all bands), you will be introduced to new terminology, requirements, and events. We hope that between the handbooks and the website, you can find the answers to most of the questions that arise throughout your first year in band and beyond, thereby enabling you to enjoy the band parent experience to the fullest!
