Special note to all high school families… There are two donation opportunities this year. The first one is the program contribution to help maintain the Instrumental Music Program as we currently know it. The second one is a student donation which is a straight donation to the program. Please remember that this year there will be no transportation costs or uniform costs. (Concert wear will be purchased separately on an as-needed basis.)
Your donations are the needed financial support to make our program work. The Instrumental Music program receives minimal district funding and we rely heavily on your generous hearts and keen investment in your child’s musical experience. Thank you!

Marching Instrument/Guard Equipment
Those that are needing a marching instrument or guard equipment for mini-camp, you can come and pick them up at that time as well. (Tuesday, June 2nd at 9am.)
Please stay in your cars initially as you pull up and wear a mask. Thank you!
Please fill out this form so we know to expect you, even if you have filled it out before.
This is also the form if you have textbooks stranded in your music lockers. Thank you!
Thank you all who were at our festival concerts last night. It was a great night of music and I am so happy that we got to share what we’ve been working on for the last 3 months.
In light of recent events, I have to be the bearer of bad news. In accordance with public health recommendations about the coronavirus, La Canada Unified School District has requested that we look into the upcoming events for the next month. On top of that, the organizations that sponsor our outside events have also taken these same recommendations and have made some announcements as well. SCSBOA (our festival sponsor), WGI (Guard and Drum Line), SCPA (Drum Line) and WGASC (Color Guard) have all cancelled any remaining events for the rest of this season. This means that all drum line and color guard shows, as well as our festival next Friday, have been cancelled.
This is a sad and surreal situation which saddens me by the loss of such great events we had planned for our students. However I know that all of these organizations and our district treat our student safety as priority number one and that is where all these decisions are rooted. While we all are grieving the loss of the events, which is completely normal, we also have to act for the greater good in this moment.
What does that mean for the rest of our year? As this is a dynamic situation, I can’t predict the future beyond Spring Break at this time, but I do know we will continue to teach, learn, grow and challenge each other to be better musicians, performers and friends.
We will try to keep you up to date on all instrumental rehearsals and events as we find out new information. Please be patient with us and the speed in which we send out our statements and information since we are trying to make sure we are separating the truths from the rumors.
Thank you all for your support in this wild and uncertain time.
Director of Instrumental Music

We need helpers to sell the snacks and volunteers to donate items for us to sell to the hungry kids.
Please click here to sign-up to work, donate, or even do both!
Thanks for your support of the Instrumental Music Program!
