Welcome to the Portage West Middle School Bands!


Welcome to the 2018-2019 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 325 student musicians, in grades 6-8.   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.
