Homewood High School is fortunate to have our area's largest and finest band staff.  These educators bring a rich wealth of music, marching and performance experience that allows the Patriot Band to remain one of the top music programs in the United States.  Recently several members of our staff were recognized for their extraordinary accomplishments.
