Marching into the Band

Unique Instruments 

    There are many instruments in the band some very common and some super unique. I talked to Mr. Langholdt about the different types of instruments in the band and what is unique about them.

    The largest group of instruments that they use in the band is percussion. The second largest is woodwind, then third is finally brass. The largest instrument in the band is the tuba and the smallest is the piccolo. In the jazz band they use instruments like a bass guitar and a trap set. If you were to join jazz band you would have a chance to play more unique instruments than in regular band.
