New Student Information

Welcome to The Skyhawks Band! 

We are thrilled that you are are interested in participating in the award-winning Deer Valley High School Band! If you are a parent of a current middle school Band student, or a parent of a student transferring to Deer Valley HS, there are no-doubt many questions you may have concerning the transition and continued participation in Band. 

What To Expect

The Deer Valley Instrumental Music Program is here to welcome you to high school life and most of all to our “Band Family”. 

Summer Band

The Marching Band at DVHS is a voluntary extra-circular activity. Similar to HS Sports. 

Summer Band is where it all starts and is required for everyone who wants to participate. 

These mini-camps are a lot of fun and extremely important especially for students who are new to the Marching Arts. You do not want to miss these! 

If you decide that Marching Band is in your future, please be sure to register for our upcoming season so we can communicate our Summer Band dates. 

Instruments & Lockers

All Wind and Brass musicians will be issued a locker to store their instruments and music. 

Instrument checkout will also take place on this day for students who will be using DVHS owned instruments

Communication

For students & parents:

Communication is the key to our success! The DVHS Band program has several forms of communication. 

Cuttime, Slack Messenger and e-mail and our DVHS Band Calendar. 

We do our very best to communicate. Please be sure to sign up for these, ESPECIALLY if you are in Marching Band.
