Mark of Excellence

Welcome to the Pike Panther Band!

We are glad your student has chosen to become part of the music family! The band staff will work diligently to provide your child the best music education and we greatly appreciate your support. It is our belief that every student can benefit from musical training, which builds character, promotes teamwork, and enhances problem-solving skills. During the school year, this page will be updated regularly and emails will be sent home about upcoming events. These will include fundraisers, rehearsals, performances, clinics, contests, and all the band gossip. Frequently check this site for weekly assignments and contact the directors about any questions you may have.

The best way to contact Mr. Forbis is via email.
