My name is Scott Himel, and I am very excited to direct the North Texas Home School Band in Plano. As a retired band director, I have had a passion to work with homeschooling parents & organizations who share a vision of excellent education. Over the years, we have improved upon our processes to ensure that our directors are in alignment with standard curriculum, the TEKS & the performance opportunities afforded the top schools. Our students compete with top honors at contest and festivals as we share the stage with some of the best schools in DFW. Our directors, clinicians and professional artists work together to meet ALL of our students expectations and inspire all of our students from 5th grade - 12th grade.
