About the Band
The George Wythe High School & Scott Memorial Middle School Band Program and its success has been a important part of the Wytheville and Wythe County community as a whole for decades. With a program that starts in the beginning of 6th grade, students are given an opportunity to pursue a daily and summer band experience throughout their middle school and high school career.
Band students compete 6th Grade Beginning Band & 7th Grade Band at Scott Memorial before traveling to George Wythe as 8th Graders to join the GWHS Concert Band. For students with a desire for more musical pursuits, GWHS offers Guitar & Piano classes as well as extracurricular opportunities such as membership in the award winning Mighty Maroon Marching Band, Jazz Band, the Indoor Drumline, & the Indoor Winter Guard Program.
Emphasis on hard work, dedication, and musicianship is what makes the Scott Memorial Middle School & George Wythe High School Band Program the Pride of the Mountain Empire.
