The Toro Band Program was founded in 1976 with the opening of Mountain View High School in Mesa, Arizona.  We are a comprehensive band program that offers opportunities for musicians of all ability levels.  Our band program is one of the largest in our district, and we are very fortunate to have a community and an administration that is very supportive of arts education.  We have four year-round concert bands, a marching band and color guard, a jazz combo class, two jazz ensembles, and two Winterguards.  We have been recognized with high ratings in all areas of our band program.

We pride ourselves in providing enriching musical experiences for all our members.  All areas of our program actively participate in festivals and competitions within our state.

We also value travel as a wonderful educational experience.  During the last fifteen years, our band has traveled around the globe.  We have given performances in London, California, New Orleans, Florida, New York, Hawaii, Ireland, and China!

WHO IS THE TORO BAND? We are a cross-section of the entire Mountain View Campus.

You will find that our band program contains just about every type of person you can possibly think of.  Many of our members actively participate in sports, theater, orchestra, choir, campus clubs… you name it, and we've probably had a band member participating in it at some point.  We have some students who are planning on becoming professional musicians or music teachers.  We have some students who wish to only pursue music as a hobby.
