Close up of marching band students playing trumpetsThe Central Washington University Bands have a long and distinguished history of excellence, appearing frequently at state, regional, national, and international conferences.

The majority of students in the bands are undergraduate music majors pursuing degrees in music education or performance. Non-music major from other academic disciplines also participate in the ensembles. A common thread of academic focus in all ensembles is reflected in our department motto--

"Music at Central - Where Teaching is a Performing Art."
