In its brief existence, the Wilson Band has established itself as one of the most successful organizations in the Northwest ISD. The success we have enjoyed as a group is a direct reflection of the hard work and fundamentals taught in the Beginner Band at Wilson Middle School.
Under the direction of Ray Hilley and Chad Waterman , students are offered instruction on Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba, and Percussion. Be sure to check out our instrument video below to hear all of these instruments in action!
Remember that we start from the ground floor. There is no prior musical training required to play an instrument with the Wilson Band! All you need to do is sign-up for band as your first elective for 6th grade. Come be part of the largest student organization on campus!
