- Band

 

Under the direction of Mr. Leonard Shaw, the secondary bands at Dade Christian include:

Pep Band, Jr. High Jazz Band, Concert Band and Symphonic Winds.  Throughout the year students will be able to compete in the district and the state level within the state of Florida.  Our bands as well as our solo and ensemble students participate in the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (FACCS) competition and Florida Bandmasters Association (FBA) events around the state of Florida. In the Spring of 2010, our Jazz Band participated in the Miami Lakes Mayors prayer breakfast.  Each year, we have several students that receive honors in the district and the state.
