About the Band







    Welcome to the Helena Middle School Band Website.   Here at Helena Middle School, we strive for excellence in all that we do.  We work to develop the whole person not only through academics and athletics, but through the arts as well.  For students to have a well-rounded education, they need more than English, math, science, and history; they need MUSIC.  We want to ensure that our students have the best music education, and subsequently the best education, possible.

    Music is for everyone and everyone likes music in some form.  Because music is a huge part of our lives already, we want to be sure that our students have access to learning this wonderful life skill that they can still use long after their formal schooling is through.  Somewhere along the way, a student saw a band perform and thought “That looks like a lot of fun.”  Here in the HMS Band, we ensure that the students have a great time in the band and learn a lot about how to be a successful performer on their instruments.

   The Helena Middle School Band feeds the Helena High School Band, under the direction of Mr. Jeff Burnside.

   It is our sincere hope that you and your child will have a wonderful experience in the Helena Middle School Band!
