Listed as “Band” in the course catalog, the Hoover Tornado Marching Band (HTMB) is Hoover High School’s award winning marching band which travels and competes throughout Southern California.
The HTMB is a prestigious group comprised of dedicated, hard-working young musicians and dancers who develop and perform a field show for competition. HTMB includes winds, percussion, and color guard students who perform at football games, field tournaments, pep rallies, and various campus and community events.
All students are welcome to join HTMB as no prior experience of any kind is needed. The HTMB may be repeated for credit, but is offered in fall semester only. In the second semester the band transforms into The Principal’s Own Concert Band. Participation in second semester Principal’s Own (zero period “band”) is required.
Marching Band is a strenuous physical activity. To improve physical endurance, students will stretch, work out, and perform calisthenics. Any student with limiting medical conditions must provide the Director with a doctor’s note detailing those conditions and limitations. A student’s level of participation may be affected by such circumstances.
