Welcome to the Portage West Middle School Bands!


Welcome to the 2020-2021 WMS Bands!  I am thrilled and honored to lead the WMS Bands.  Please take some time to explore our new website.  The WMS band program is comprised of over 280 student musicians, in grades 6-8.   I truly believe that our students should sound amazing and have fun doing it!  I am looking forward to working with our fine student musicians.  I know they will make excellent music this year, and, represent our band program with pride.   

Dennis Kozian - Director of Bands
