"Success is not the final destination...

it is the journey"


  • Few organizations of any kind offer so many real-world experiences for student and parent alike. The Farragut High School Band program provides leadership opportunities and musical activities that encompass a wide scope and allow our students the opportunity to reach the highest possible level of success, while making memories that will last a lifetime.
  • The Farragut Band Boosters organization has worked to support the Farragut High School Band for more than 50 years. Shown here in 1968, the Marching Admirals of that day pose in new uniforms provided by the Boosters.
  • It is said that character results from experience. It follows that extraordinary experience begets extraordinary character. We strive to provide our students with opportunities for the extraordinary.
  • Marching season begins each year with band camp starting in late July. Both returning and new students begin to learn the season's show, positions, and music. After two weeks of long days, hot weather and exhausting drills, band camp wraps up with a Band Dance, Family B-B-Q and special preview performance.
  • The Marching Admirals enjoy the opportunity to perform their show 7 - 10 games per season. We are grateful to our partners in the Admirals Football program for providing pre-and post show entertainment.
  • The Farragut Guard program consists of Fall Guard as part of the Marching Admirals and Winterguard that competes nationally at WGI Regionals and World Championships
  • Farragut High School has a long standing tradition of excellence on the concert stage performing several home concerts each year as well as regional and state festivals
  • The Farragut Indoor Percussion Ensemble is an extra-curricular performance ensemble that competes nationally at WGI Regionals and World Championships January thru mid-April
