Hewitt Trussville Middle School Band

The Hewitt-Trussville Middle School Band Program strives to have every student reach his or her individual potential in instrumental music. The band program serves more than 400 students in grades six through eight, with beginner enrollment typically around 175 students.  

 

The beginning band is divided into six homogeneously grouped classes. Seventh and eighth grades students are enrolled into one of three levels of performing bands: Honors Band, Symphonic Band, and Concert Band. All band classes meet every day for 49 minutes. A select group of eighth grade students form our HTMS Band Leadership Team and act as a service organization for our band program. 

The HTMS Band program has received many awards as well as earned consistent superior ratings at the Alabama Bandmasters Music Performance Assessment. The band program is well-represented at the District IV Honor Band and Alabama All-State Band. The HTMS Honors Band has performed at several prestigious events in recent years including the 2017 Alabama Music Educators Association Conference and the 2016 University of Alabama Middle School Honor Band Festival.  HTMS Band students also enjoy success and are leaders in athletics, drama, art, choir, student council, National Junior Honor Society, Duke TIP Program, dance team, and yearbook staff, just to name a few. The directors feel it important that students be allowed to explore as many different areas of life in their middle school years to find their true passion.
