All music courses fulfill the graduation requirement of 10 units of Fine Arts coursework, and fulfill the U.C. and Cal. State U. (P), college prep requirement for Fine Arts coursework. All classes require co-curricular participation: after-school rehearsals, activities and performances are a part of the student’s grade.
Band is open to students with experience on a traditional band instrument. Students learn musicianship and skills on their instrument through preparation of a variety of band music literature. Although ELMO does not currently have a string orchestra, string players such as violins and bass players are welcome to play in band.
