La Quinta Highschool Blackhawk Brigade

We believe that music education is a core to students’ education and must be available to all students. The Blackhawk Brigade is La Quinta High School's award-winning marching band that travels and competes throughout Southern California. We have the largest and hardest working student organization at La Quinta High School. This prestigious group is comprised of young musicians and dancers that develop skills and perform a field show for competition. These students share a passion for performing and strive for excellence.

Welcome David Jewett, the new director of the Blackhawk Brigade!

Dr. Jewett is entering his third year at LQHS with hope for the future!  The past several months have been challenging for everyone, but the students in the Blackhawk Brigade have exceeded expectations.  When we are all able to come back together for rehearsal and performance, we will have the largest ensembles since Dr. Jewett arrived. 

HOW PLAYING AN INSTRUMENT BENEFITS YOUR BRIAN!

Playing a musical instrument engages practically every area of the brain at once, especially the visual, auditory, and motor cortices. As with any other workout, disciplined, structured practice playing music strengthens those brain functions allowing us to apply that strength to other activities. Clink on the link below and view a brief video that will provide you with important information on just how critical playing an instrument is for your brain. Once you view the video go to our Facebook page and tell us what you think!
