The Best Band in the Land

The Fort Zumwalt West High School Band program is part of a comprehensive and well-rounded instrumental music program at Fort Zumwalt West High School in O'Fallon, Missouri.  Students begin their band journey in the 6th grade at West Middle School and then have the opportunity to continue that journey at West High School.  Students are able to participate in our many ensembles which include:  the marching band band named the Silver Jaguar Brigade, one of our several Concert Bands, one of our several Jazz Bands and Jazz Combos, Brass Choir, Woodwind Choir, Percussion Ensemble/Class, Chamber Ensembles, Guitar Classes, and Music Theory.  Additionally, students have the opportunity to share their talents through our amazing mentorship and service opportunities which include: The Tri-M Music honor Society, mentoring Special Needs students and preparing them to perform with our concert bands in the Spring, joining our intense Marching Band Leadership Team, and mentoring middle school band students. 
The Fort Zumwalt West High School Band Program has performed and competed both regionally and nationally since 1998.  The program has grown into one of the largest and most well respected programs in the area and prides itself on its inclusiveness and amazing students.  The band is under the direction of the Director of Bands Mr. Keith Moyer and Assistant Director of Bands Mr. Paul Shanker and Mr. Neil Flannigan.
