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.

3. We have raised a total of $3600 on the Instrument Drive. Please help get the word out! The kids desperately need new instruments. Many of the instruments we have in our inventory are in very bad shape and beyond repair. We currently do not have enough instruments for the students enrolled in our program. Please help get the word out!! A special thanks to Tony and Helen Wu and the Banh and Chong Families for their generous donations!

4. Thank you to the class of 2015. You will be missed!
