Welcome

For the past 10 years, the Hanford Music Department has grown into one of the most celebrated music programs in the Northwest. Outstanding individual musicianship and excellent scores and ratings for ensembles are the product of student discipline, responsibility, and teaching that aspires excellence.

Students in our program are regularly involved in rigorous academic schedules that include AP courses, Running Start, and Worked Based Learning. Most are also involved in extra-curricular activities both in the high school and in the community. Band students are repeatedly earning scholarships to top colleges around the country, and are excelling in all areas of life.

The program boasts many awards from regional and national competitions, and has a growing number of individuals who are selected for honor bands. There is even a student nominated for the US Army All American Band. The program attracts nationally recognized artists who visit Hanford as guest-artists-in-residence.
