Pep Band

Every student enrolled in a Concert Band, Symphonic Winds & Percussion, Wind Ensemble, and the Jaguar Jazz Ensemble are members of the Fort Zumwalt West Pep Band.  The Pep Band performs at both Girls and Boys Varsity (Home) Basketball Games as well as other sporting and civic events as needed.  Students perform popular songs and cadences typically heard at sporting events as we cheer our Jaguars on to a win.  Pep Band also offers opportunities for students to perform on other instruments like electric guitar, electric bass, drum set, keyboard, and others.  It is during Pep Band that future Drum Major candidates first begin to lead and conduct the band.  The atmosphere created by the Pep Band not only helps to make West High a special place but also is our way in which we give back and serve our school community while preparing our students for the world of college athletics and scholarships.  Many of our alumni are now on scholarships at colleges and universities across the country as members of the marching band and pep band.  Go Jaguars!
