Hudson Hawk Band

Beginner Band rehearsing together for the first time.

The Hudson Band has 240 students in 6-8 grade.  We have 3 advanced bands, a beginner band where students learn in like-instrument classes, and a jazz band. 

So far this school year, we have had 27 students earn a spot in the GISD All-District Band and/or the TMEA Region 3 All-Region Band.  Of those students, 3 earned the distinction of being 1st chair.  Our students have earned 118 first division medals at the Solo & Ensemble competitions and 8 have been selected as outstanding soloists!  We will certainly add to that number when our beginner students participate in that contest in May.

In 2019 we became the first middle school in Garland ISD history to have 3 middle school bands earn the Sweepstakes award at the UIL Concert & Sightreading Evaluation.  Our Wind Symphony was ranked 6th in the region in their first time entering the TMEA CCC Honor Band Competition.  Our bands regularly receive superior ratings at contests and festivals around the DFW metroplex.
