The Midlands Home School Band (MHSB) is a music program offered to home school and private school students in the Midlands of South Carolina. MHSB provides an excellent group band instruction from beginner to experienced levels in a nurturing environment. We strive to develop the student’s musical skill and appreciation as a means to glorify God.

Take a look around our site to see who we are and how we offer students the opportunity to grow through the development of technical skills and an appreciation for the aesthetic, cultural and historical aspects of music.

The 2016-2017 School Year

Auditions / “Meet and Greet” – September 1, 3:15 PM @ Ben Lippen Band Room

Band schedule specifics will be coming soon, but in general, band will meet much as it did last year on Tuesdays and Thursdays depending on the group you are in (beginners, intermediate or concert band), and all times will be after 3:15 (beginners usually first, then older groups later in the afternoon). The specific times will be available once we finish coordinating with our host facilities.

We strive to provide students with the best in musical instruction resulting in a high degree of excellence and recognition for their achievements. Last year we had a number of our students seating in Region Band, All-State Band and All-State Orchestra. One of the students making All-State Band also qualified for participation in All-State Orchestra through their strong auditions. Congratulations! to our band students who made Region Band, All-State Band and All-State Orchestra this year!
