Welcome to University of Miami Bands

All of our quality bands play an integral role in student life at the University of Miami as well as in the Frost School of Music’s Department of Instrumental Performance, where students enjoy rich academic and musical experiences at both undergraduate and graduate levels, filled with solo and chamber music, large ensemble performance, world premieres, and exciting cross-genre collaborations with other program areas such as orchestra and jazz.

If you are a woodwind, brass or percussion player who enjoys performing in wind ensemble, concert band, marching band, pep band, and more, then you will be amazed to learn how much the University of Miami Frost School of Music has to offer you!
