• The Gift
    If you are looking for an opportunity for your child to receive possible scholarship money for college, then the Westbury High School Band Program is the organization for your child. In the past six years, the band program here at Westbury has had eighty-two out of eighty-nine seniors go off to college with some type of financial assistance. This financial assistance has been academic, music, and band scholarships, as well as grants and student loans. One hundred percent of our seniors graduate from high school and ninety-five percent of them go off to college.

     

    We provide a very disciplined and structured environment for our students. It’s a family atmosphere, we have loads of fun, but it is not easy and it can be very difficult!!! But anything you work hard for is worth having!!!

     

    We have marching band, concert band, jazz band, and guitar. Through the band programs here at Westbury, students learn self-discipline, respect, honor, pride, and responsibility!!! All of these are tools that everyone needs to be successful in the real world.

     

    Our Marching Band performs at all football games, as well as parades in and out of state. We have won many band competitions and participated in the NCAA Final Four when it came to Houston. The Westbury High School band was the only band chosen to lead over 12,000 people in the NCAA Final Four Dribble. Our band has even played in Disney World in Orlando, FL.

     

    The concert band performs at UIL Concert and Sight-Reading, and scored a (1) one or a superior rating for the first time in 35 years.

     

    The Jazz band performs all over the city of Houston, and has played with Jazz artists such as Tia Fuller, Tom Browne, and Kyle Turner, who is also a Jazz band instructor here at Westbury HS. Mr. Turner co-teaches with Mr. Al Campbell, also a famous Jazz musician in the Houston area, and is also the Jazz band teacher at Parker ES.  

     

    If you don’t know how to play an instrument, we can teach you!! All we want is the hard work and effort put into learning how to play, and the reward CAN come in the form of scholarship money for college!!!
