Students in the WSHS band program rehearse and perform in large concert ensembles and receive weekly private or group lessons. Band students have the opportunity to perform in honor bands, solo and ensemble contests, and to be members of the award-winning Winhawk Marching Band. The four high school bands are directed by Mr. Tim Gleason and Mr. Myron Haug, and the High School Jazz Band is directed by Ms. Melody Snyder.

WSHS band students are recognized as some of the finest musician in Minnesota. Every year, students from WSHS are chosen for membership in the Minnesota All-State music ensembles, and in 2010 the WSHS Symphonic Band performed at the Minnesota Music Educators Association Mid-Winter Clinic in Minneapolis. Every two years the Winhawk Marching Band marches down Main Street USA at Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida, in the month of November.
