I keep hearing great things from Florida about the Tarpon Springs High School music program, whose marching band is a seven-time Bands of America AA and AAA Division National Champion (seen above in Grand Nationals). Some of their more recent accomplishments include:
2014 Bands of America Grand National Champions and AA National Champions
One of 11 bands selected to perform at the 2013 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
Director Kevin Ford named the 2014 Outstanding Educator for Pinellas County Public Schools
Director Kevin Ford one of five finalists for the 2015 Florida State Teacher of the Year award
Not only do they also have an incredible jazz band program (a 2015 Berklee High School Jazz Festival Champion), the department has seven different ensembles performing on a national level.
