PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

Learn more about how you can get involved with your student's music experience at LaFayette High School. It truly does take a village to make your student's band experience one that they will enjoy and never forget! Join us and help us make this season GREAT!

An appreciation for music and basic classical education are key ingredients to musical success.  We promise to give you a learning experience that will develop your musical talents more than you

have ever dreamed.
