Welcome to the West Florida Home Education Music Association – the Home School Band. We are happy that you found us and are interested in discovering more about our organization. Over twenty years ago, a local homeschooling parent, Glenda Jones, wanted to create an opportunity for homeschooled students to perform in a premier musical group. Over the years, the group has grown in size, as well as level of musical ability. Mrs. Jones even took 60 students to Florida band festival, and received a superior rating.

Today, the band is the premier homeschool musical association in Northwest Florida. The group has expanded to include three directors, six different performance groups, and now includes wind and string instruments. Throughout the year, we focus on musical and instrumental instruction; assessment opportunities, such as solo and ensemble contest and sonata competition; performance opportunities in many locations; and fun as well as educational social opportunities for children ages 8-18.

We welcome you to look through our website to understand more about our organization. We strive to be a warm, Christ-centered, educational musical group for children. We have a seat in the orchestra for you!
