The Father Ryan Band
Father Ryan's band has competed both across the country and across the world. Students may participate in a variety of music programs ranging from marching band to private music lessons. Our music programs have enjoyed much success in recent years due to the hard work and dedication of the staff, students, and parents. Students are consistently successful in solo and ensemble, mid-state, and all-state performances; and the marching band and winter drumline regularly win or place in state, regional, national, and world championships. Instructional music programs are offered as academic credit and/or co-curricular activity.
