The Joyful Noise Marching Saints is a Christian, multi-category, award-winning homeschool Marching band established in 2008. We strive to provide the same experience your student would have in a band program at a brick-and-mortar school. With our many community supporters, we are able to provide high school level programs to students 12 and up, at affordable prices.
Our Band consists of our winds, percussion, and wonderful Color Guard.
Our founder Susan Davis had the vision that no home-educated child should miss out on the experience of music because it isn’t available or affordable. This vision continues to guide the band’s policies.
What do we do?
The Joyful Noise Marching Saints perform at football game halftime shows, parades, competitions, and occasionally local charity events.
We have marched for various football programs including The Kings Academy, Johnsons Ferry Christian Academy, and The North Georgia Falcons. During the football game, The Saints play exciting stand tunes to keep the crowd motivated for our home team! Next, the marching band entertains the crowd at halftime with a professionally written field show. Each year our field show has a different theme. We have marched themes from Pirates of the Caribbean to Space to Disney, and yet another was a crusade theme of right and wrong and sacrifice. Each year it is exciting to see what our fabolus directors come up with. They're very creative, and each different section in the band is showcased during the performance. Color Guard, Drumline and Windline are all important to our performances!
The Jr. Pep Band is composed of younger students, who complement the marching band playing the songs in the stands at football games. They are wonderful young people learning about marching band for the very first time. This program is excellent for siblings of marching students not quite old enough to join, and students ready to "play with the band"
The Marching Saints performs in 2 to 4 local parades each year. Due to Covid -19, Many parades have canceled their 2021 dates. We are still looking forward to marching the annual Christmas parade as usual.
Festivals and Competition
We generally participate in two festivals or competitions each fall. Each is designed to give us feedback on our performances. Judges' comments help the directors know what areas we have mastered and give suggestions on areas that could improve our marching. It's a great day to get together with our band buddies and see many other marching bands of different sizes and styles perform their shows. We get awards based on how we perform, and we've consistently earned "Excellent" and "Superior" ratings! Regardless of how we fall in the competition, we always strive to do our personal best and have a great time!
