Any questions about the band program, auditions, classes…?

At WHS, classes are called ensembles and are offered at different levels from beginning to advanced. Visit the New Band Family FAQ to learn the answers to common questions.

For student-specific questions (scheduling issues, etc.) feel free to email a director. Contact Info can be found on the Contact Staff page.

How can parents be involved?

We need parent volunteers! No musical skill necessary. The WHSIM Boosters coordinate volunteers, donations, and more! Learn how you can help!

What does it take to run a program of this size?

The WHS Instrumental Music Boosters (WHSIMB) is thrilled to offer this comprehensive music program to every student, regardless of the family’s contribution. No student will be denied the opportunity to participate due to costs. WHSIMB incurs the expenses of assistant instructors, instruments, music, equipment rental, classroom daily needs and many other expenses not covered by CVUSD. To cover these expenses, we must rely on donations from devoted parents/boosters who share our vision. Your Spirit Pack donation directly benefits our kids and makes possible all of the exciting experiences in the WHS Instrumental Music Department.
