Pursuit of Excellence

The Natchitoches Central Band Department teaches students to never settle in life, and to give all pursuits maximum effort. You are able to achieve anything if you put in the work for it. 

Team Culture

In any team activity, culture is key to success. Talent sets the floor, while culture sets the ceiling of achievement. At Natchitoches Central, we focus on building core values of teamwork in each of our performers. 


In band, music fundamentals are key for success. The NC Band Department focuses on building strong fundamentals in each of our performers. It is our belief that high level achievement is made possible through strong fundamentals.
