Teaching students the love of music and skills to enjoy it for a lifetime

Our Mission

At Burbank High School Instrumental Music Association (BHS IMA) we strive to promote self-discipline, hard work, independent thought, problem-solving skills, teamwork and self esteem. We aim to help students learn how to express themselves in positive and constructive ways, to better understand and relate to others and to work collaboratively to create a finished product. 


BHS IMA is organized around the philosophy that an excellent high school music program consists of a core of performance classes that rehearse daily, perform regularly, require outside practice and include regular testing to measure how well the students are meeting the program standards and progressing towards their personal performance goals.


Our goal is not to prepare students for a career in music, but for life itself. An excellent music program helps students grow into thoughtful, sensitive, caring, articulate and well-rounded adults who believe that they can achieve their goals in life by applying the skills they have learned from being part of the music program
