About Us

The Pensacola Home School Band & Strings began more than 25 years ago when a home school mom and FSU music studies graduate, Glenda Jones, developed and served as director of a band program designed for home schooled students. From those humble beginnings this award winning band grew to over 60 band members, and many of those students have gone on to pursue careers in Music.

In 2007, we incorporated as a non-profit 501c3, West Florida Home Education Music Association (WFHEMA), dedicated to providing home schoolers with excellent musical instruction and opportunities.

Today, the “Pensacola Home School Band & Strings” as we are most generally known, is comprised of six musical groups

  • Beginner Band
  • Intermediate Band
  • Wind Ensemble (Advanced Students)
  • Beginner Strings
  • Intermediate Strings
  • Chamber Strings (Advanced Students)
