Mission of the Carroll Instrumental Music Program

The Mission of the Carroll High School Band Department is to use music and excellence to learn how to maximize one’s potential


What we do is provide students.... Especially young ones... Opportunities to really begin to understand the joy of making music.

We as a band family provide musical opportunities and memories for hundreds... Maybe thousands of students that they will remember for many, many years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions about Jazz Café

How does Jazz Cafe work?  We serve a sit-down dinner while the bands are performing. If you aren’t interested in eating dinner, we offer the opportunity for people to just sit in the chairs only section (no tables for eating).  This year’s dinner will be the same as last year: chicken, hash brown casserole, green beans, salad, rolls and also includes dessert and coffee.  There is an option for a gluten-free meal for those who require it.

What groups will perform? All of Carroll’s Jazz Bands will play: Jazz I, Jazz II and Jazz Combo, plus Carroll Middle and Maple Creek Middle’s Jazz bands.

Are children welcome? The event usually lasts about 2 1/2 hours with all the bands.  You know your child best, but very young children might get restless.  There is no student price, the cost is the same for all attendees.

Can we buy dinner and show for some attendees and show only for some and still sit together?  That should work.  We will have little table tents for you to put in front of the show only attendees so that they aren’t served a meal.

Do I need to pay for a meal for my student? No need!  We feed the musicians before they perform.

Century Resources Spring Fundraiser!

This year’s Century Resources Spring Fundraiser will benefit both you, personally and the program as a whole. 50% of your proceeds raised will go towards our uniform fund in an effort to ensure we can get new uniforms in the near future.

The other 50% of the proceeds will go back directly to you in your Student Individual Account (SIA) --- allowing you to cover future expenses simply by selling a few items.
