Join the Band

Band of the Hills welcomes adult and student musicians of at least high school age. You are welcome to show up with your instrument ready to play at one of our regular rehearsals, meet members of the band and discuss your particulars with our conductor.  There are no auditions and the only requirement is that you try your best, come prepared and have fun. The band’s standards are high and music is selected, rehearsed and performed with that in mind.

Do not worry if you have not played in a while. Band of the Hills is a great way to reignite your love of playing music! Many of our members have returned to playing after years away from their instruments. We never put individuals on the spot just because they have difficulty with the music. We believe the best incentive to learn comes from being challenged to keep up with those around you.  We want to help you grow and improve as a musician.

Our concert season typically runs September through June. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings starting at 7:15 and ending by 9:30 at Northpoint Church. Email Michial Meyer (treasurer@bandofthehills.org) or call him at 512-426-4270 telling us of your plans to attend. Members should make every effort to arrive at rehearsal in time to assemble their instruments, warm up and tune up in time to begin playing at 7:15pm sharp.  Members are expected to attend as many rehearsals as possible. When a player knows they will not be able to attend a rehearsal, they should notify their section leader in advance.

As a new member, you may be asked to sit out an upcoming concert if that concert is scheduled close to your date of joining. This is not a judgment on your playing skill. We feel regardless of your skill, attendance to several rehearsals is required to ensure all members in the band perform well together and have absorbed all the performance instructions given over many rehearsals.
