The Midlands Home School Band (MHSB) is a music program offered to home school and private school students in the Midlands of South Carolina. MHSB provides an excellent group band instruction from beginner to experienced levels in a nurturing environment. We strive to develop the student’s musical skill and appreciation as a means to glorify God.

Take a look around our site to see who we are and how we offer students the opportunity to grow through the development of technical skills and an appreciation for the aesthetic, cultural and historical aspects of music.
