Thousand Oaks High School's band program offers students an opportunity to perform as members of one of California's premier high school bands. The Lancer Organization, a collaboration of outstanding students, faculty, staff and parents striving to achieve program excellence, has been the recipient of many prestigious awards in field, indoor, and concert settings. The Lancer's varied performance ensembles are recognized for their excellence.
Our staff, under the direction of "Marty" Martone work tirelessly to help the Lancer Band and all of its ensemble groups reach their full potential. The professional staff is supported by an outstanding group of student leaders.
All band parents are members of the Lancer Band Boosters who provide support to the Lancer Band and all of its ensemble groups. This group of active parents provide behind-the-scenes support of the entire program through fundraising, performance support, and organizational coordination.
Once part of the band family, we all know it's hard to leave. As such, we have a network of alumni parents and students who receive communication throughout the year and come back to provide performance support.
Finally, we cannot forget the very important support of our sponsors and patrons! Their financial support is critical to helping provide a significant portion of what the band program has to offer!
