Florida Tech University Bands
The Band at Florida Tech offers a variety of ways for musically talented students like you to continue to practice and perform while pursuing any degree program at the university. Any student, regardless of major, is welcome to enroll in Big Band, Wind Ensemble and/or Pep Band. Our program exists to satisfy students' intrinsic love of playing their instrument. We strive to provide a creative and engaging environment that complement’s the University’s tradition of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
Some first-year students believe there will be limited time for enrolling in band. College life is often unavoidably stressful; however, the best way to manage that stress is by incorporating a variety of activities that you enjoy into your weekly schedule. Being part of band is an escape from the otherwise incessant pressure that rigorous college courses entail. The Florida Tech Band will give you a chance to make music each week in a group atmosphere that favors communal advancement toward a shared performance goal over individual competitiveness. Plus, it's just plain fun!
We believe music is inherently a social activity, and the presence of our ensembles can help students build kinship with each other and reduce their levels of stress and monotony. If you were passionate about music in high school, our program is set up to allow you to continue to foster that passion and give you a creative outlet while majoring in your focused area.
