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. Students interested in Mariachi band at Hilhi can contact Mr. Ben Noyes, the Choir director.
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.
Please check the band calendar often for updates on band events and practices. Many changes occur throughout the season.

We also use the information provided during your registration to create band student accounts and update the parent group email distribution so you receive important information directly.
