Our History

WFHEMA began over 25 years ago when a homeschool mom and FSU music studies graduate, Glenda Jones, developed and served as director of a band program designed for homeschooled students. From those humble beginnings, this award winning band grew to over 60 band members with many of those students having gone on to pursue careers in music.

In 2007, WFHEMA incorporated as a non-profit 501c3 dedicated to providing homeschoolers with excellent musical instruction and opportunities.

Today, the Homeschool Band, as we are most generally known, is comprised of 6 musical groups:

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