HHS Instrumental Music

This video was created for our future 7th graders, since we didn't get to spend any time talking to them about band in the high school this year. But anyone interested in joining the Marching Band should check it out!

Thanks to all of the students that submitted recordings for this project and a special shout-out to Mr. Cardamone, our Athetic Director, and Mr. Werner, our Head Football Coach, for also helping us out!

We don't know what Marching Band will look like in the Fall yet, but if you are interested in joining the Marching Red Raiders please contact Mr. Neff. We are looking for brass, woodwinds, percussion and colorguard members! Email Mr. Neff for more information: [email protected]


Chrome Music Lab - Song made May 21, 2020

Listen to this super cool piece by 6th Grader Parker Graham

Another awesome piece by 5th Grader Jack Green

I like the techno feel of this piece by 4th Grader Zaine Jenkins!

Good Morning Music Friends!

We have all been affected by the current situation in our world.
We want everyone to be safe, but we also want to PERFORM!
Many students were disappointed when musicals, concerts, and more were cancelled or postponed indefinitely.
We don't know when we will be able to come together again, but we won't let that keep us down.

USAF Band of the Golden West

Really cool tune by a great band!
Everyone stay safe and healthy!

HOT OFF THE PRESS!! The Commanders Jazz Ensemble presents “The Last Dinosaur” written by our very own SrA Ally Albrecht. The tune was written for our March tour that was recently cancelled. For those who were planning to see us play live, here is an 18-video layered performance of the tune. #livefromhome

This tune is dedicated to the Airmen serving around the world who are delivering critical supplies to those in need, providing medical treatment to affected populations, and evacuating Americans who are stranded abroad.

We hope this brings joy to your day and reaffirms to you that we will get through this. #bettertogether
