Welcome to Open House


Welcome to Open House on Feb. 15, 2017.  We are all really excited to meet you.  Tours begin at 7:00Pm and Mr. Edwards (our wonderful band director) will be in the band room until the last parent leaves.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact him at: gedwards@sjsd.net.

At Westwood we offer three dynamic concert bands and four fully voiced jazz ensembles. Feel free to explore this website for loads of information about the fantastic programming available here in our band program.

What makes us unique, you ask?  Unlike most top down organizations, we are a student led program that focuses on life-skill development and project based learning where student voice drives program change.







Speaking of student voice:

"When I first came to Westwood I was almost certain that I was going to drop band all together but decided to stick it out and give it a chance.  I am very thankful that I did, as I have learned more than I had ever imagined, and not just with music, but also in life."  - Mikayla



"There are some moments where I just sit back and listen to everything going on and the fact that seventy of the sportiest, nerdiest, and genuinely nicest people in Westwood get together to play something so beautiful." - Kelli
