MARCHING BAND:
Just a reminder as we approach November and our football team continues to win, We will be in the playoffs.  All students will be expected to attend all home playoff games. Any away playoff games will be voluntary (Pep Band).   We will continue to enjoy performing the show until the last home game. (except for Thanksgiving Weekend). Although our competition season is ending soon our football season typically is only halfway over.

Welcome!

Cornelius, and Davidson, NC. The band program at Hough High School has a comprehensive and
well-rounded
curriculum that provides options for
instrumental musicians at all developmental levels.


The award-winning Husky Marching Band and Jazz Ensemble 
are voluntary classes that meet after school. Three concert ensembles are offered during the academic day. Indoor performance groups, Winter Guard and Winter Drumline
are also offered. Inquiries can be directed
to Mr. Carrington.



Teens who participate in music education programs
see music as their “social glue,”as a bridge for building 
acceptance and tolerance for people of different ages and cultural circumstances, and associate playing
music with music literacy, self-discipline, listening skills, motorability, eye-hand coordination and heightened intellectual capabilities.
