Lyons Middle Senior High School

about us

Program Overview

Lyons’ Band Program has four band programs with nearly 170 members in grades 6-12, which is an impressive 40 percent of the school population.

All students have the opportunity to take courses in the History of Rock and Roll and Beginning Guitar, as well as Music Appreciation through the Colorado State University Concurrent Enrollment Program.

The high school Concert Band has earned a reputation of being one of the finest small-school programs in Colorado, and frequently earns superior scores when competing with 4A and 5A high school band programs.

Lyons Band students are regularly selected as members of the All-State Band, Orchestra and Jazz Band programs.

In 2015, every valedictorian was involved in a band program, while alumni have gone on to study music at prestigious schools including Berklee College of Music (Boston), Pepperdine University and many of Colorado’s finest colleges and universities.
