Band Parents

How can I help my child succeed in Band?

Band Parent Philosophy and Purpose

The Band Booster Parents help to organize the bands trips, provide chaperones for all Band, MMC, Color Guard, Drum Line and Winter Guard events and help to transport the bands substantial amount of equipment to and from competitions and performances.

Band booster parents achieve this support through many programs and service projects. Fundraising, Organized Project Committees, chaperoning, uniform organization, prop set and equipment building, and food preparations are just a few examples of how our parents get involved and provide support to the music program. The bottom line is that our booster parents perform a vital service and major support to our student program by active involvement in our booster organization. Volunteer work may be organized through our booster leadership and outlines and descriptions of volunteer jobs and opportunities will be displayed on our website.


Every parent of a student in the Chantilly High School Band program is expected and encouraged to give at least one hour each month on behalf of the band program. There are many, many jobs, both small and large, required to make this program succeed. A marvelous sense of accomplishment comes from hearing and seeing the superior results of our students and parents hard work.

Each year, parents give a total of more than 7,000 volunteer hours to this program. Each parents contribution is extremely important and very much appreciated!
