Westlake High School

Instrumental Music


New Students

WHSIM is excited to welcome new families to our growing community. Learn about what it means to be part of this prestigious program.


Volunteers Needed

The Instrumental Music Department needs you. We can’t do all the fun and enriching activities without the support of all the parents. 



The calendar outlines practice schedules, instrumental performances, restaurant nights, and fundraising events. Check out all the upcoming events.


Spirit Packs

The Band Program depends on donations from parents! The Department kindly asks that all families buy a spirit pack matched to the student’s ensemble so that the program can continue to pay for resources and staff.
