FAQ

Do I have to be a music major to be in TB? - No, as a matter of fact, the majority of TB (over 75%) is made up of majors from other colleges and schools across campus including engineering, mass communication, etc.

Are there any scholarship opportunities with TB? - Yes there are several opportunities. If you are selected as a member, you will automatically receive a $1000 stipend. Additionally, we do have some scholarship money available based on instrumental need and playing ability.

Is there are GPA/credit requirement to be in TB? - Every member of Tiger Band must have a minimum 2.0 GPA. Additionally, all members must be full-time students at LSU with a minimum of 12 credit hours.

How much rehearsal time is required? - TB is a university course that you register for when you select your classes (MUS 4250). We only rehearse 4 days a week for an hour and a half. If we have a home game, we have a rehearsal the morning of the game.

How much does it cost to be in TB? - There are no costs to you! In fact, we pay you! The Department of Bands covers all costs including dry cleaning of your uniform, instrument repairs, travel (Yes, you do not pay extra fees to travel with us!), etc. in addition to your $1000 stipend.

How often do we travel? - TB takes one full band trip during the regular season, a 100 member pep band to all away games, then a full band trip for the bowl game. Once again, the Department of Bands covers your costs including per diem for meals.

How many shows does TB do per season? - This is based on how many home games we have but we typically perform 6 shows per season. This is one of the biggest differences between TB and high school band and our students love the variety that comes with our seasons. Shows never become dull because we are always learning new ones!
