The band programs at Tucson Unified's schools are award-winners! Recent recognition includes the follow:
- Rincon/UHS Wins ABODA State Competition
- Tucson High Magnet School Wins ABODA's Top Prize
- Vail MS Advanced Band received Superior Award at ABODA Area Festival
These successes hinge on our approach: students in elementary school learn that the correct playing position, breathing, and fingering is the foundation of learning to play a band instrument, and from the sound fundamentals, we progress into working with musical concepts, technique, performance situations, and more developed literature.
