We are what we repeatedly do. Therefore, excellence is not an act, but a habit.
The Iowa Park Hawk Band is an award winning program, with a long standing tradition of success.
We believe music exposes an individual to concepts of lasting cultural values: beauty, self expression, discipline, responsibility and a positive contribution towards a greater whole.
Music, band in particular, is an experience unlike any offered in the entire school spectrum. It teaches the analytical, cooperative and communicative skills emphasized in a school curriculum, but also allows students to explore a deeper realm of achievement and expression. Band accomplishes this, not through the framework and support of language, but through the unique self-expression of music.
With this in mind we strive to develop student musicians as individuals and as members of an ensemble; members whose mission is to represent themselves and their community through excellence in performance.
