The Mission of the Hilhi Band program is to provide a quality music education to all students. Our focus is building quality by focusing on the individual performer. Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, Marching Band, Pep Band, and solo experience leads to a well-rounded player.

Performance opportunities, especially those through the Oregon Music Educators Association, are encouraged for all. Additionally, through the band, a feeling of belonging, teamwork, time management, dedication, self-esteem, leadership, cooperation and responsibility is learned.
