Heartland Band and Strings

Heartland Homeschool Bands and Strings is an instrumental and elementary music program designed to give Texas and Oklahoma homeschoolers the experience and joy of being in a band or orchestra.

With over 700 students in multiple locations, HHBS offers programs for beginning, intermediate, and advanced players in band and orchestra. In 2018, HHBS introduced a primary music program and now offers classes for preschoolers and students not yet for beginning band and strings classes.
