The Smithson Valley Ranger Band is deeply dedicated to our amazing music program and currently boasts a membership of over 300 high school music students.

We have a dedicated staff that help guide and encourage our students. We set high expectations for ourselves, and our students, and they always rise to the occasion.

Our supportive parent community, Smithson Valley Band Booster Association and dedicated band students help raise funds that support our efforts, making it possible for us to continue to provide an excellent band experience for all.

We are the Smithson Valley High School Ranger Band, Pride of the Texas Hill Country!
