Get Involved In Music

Our Newest Program! The Mighty Tiger Marching Band

Read the complete news story.

Our Mighty Tiger Marching Band will take the field starting Fall 2013 - and you can be a part of it!

  • Free uniforms in your first year (except shoes), and bonus, the uniforms will be comfortable warm-ups with a baseball cap.
  • Smaller time commitment means you can have a non-musical life.  A short band camp prior to the start of school and rehearsals limited to Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings before games.
  • An opportunity for you to be creative and help shape new traditions with the band.
  • Much-needed experience if you're a music education major looking to be a high school band director.
  • $700 annual scholarship if you auditioned for a regular music scholarship.

It's a great thing to be a Doane Tiger.... take that pride to the field as a Mighty Tiger!

Contact your admission counselor or Lance Nielsen, marching band director, for more details.
