Our Band Program is built on...

Pride, Perseverance,

Toughness and Hard Work!


The Northwest HS Husky Band is all about helping individual students grow into the best well-rounded musicians, students and citizens they can be while balancing all other aspects of high school life. Consistent steps forward each day by individual band members, with support from outstanding student leaders and staff, will result in enormous growth and success for the Husky Band... we have NO LIMITS!
