South Hills Band and Colorguard



The South Hills High School Music Program is a student-focused organization dedicated to the performing arts. For decades, South Hills has been opening its doors to young students of all different talents and interests throughout the Covina Valley. By giving these students the opportunity to express themselves through music and dance, South Hills’ Music Director and staff are committed to making a positive influence in each student’s life.

Under the direction of Mr. Michael Wooten, South Hills’ performing ensembles have consistently gained competitive recognition throughout the years. Composed of a marching band, symphonic band, wind ensemble, jazz ensemble, as well as a Winter Colorguard and Percussion Ensemble, South Hills continues to sustain itself as an active and dynamic force in the performing arts world. Instilling the values of teamwork and motivation in a productive and intense working environment, South Hills provides a unique and positive learning experience unlike any other.
