Welcome to the 2018 - 2019

Instrumental Music Season


Some students still need to pay for their Instrumental Music Uniform Polo

Cost is $16, payable to EGJH with "Music Shirt" or "Band Shirt" on the memo line

The Upcoming Events Page has been updated!


Music in the Parks/Disneyland Trip

This year's trip will be March 14 - 17. At present it appears we'll be able too hold the cost to last year's amount: $450 per student and $475 for chaperones. A detailed itinerary will be forthcoming.

This is the Link to the Form if you need!


Important New Protocal Regarding Student Medications!

This year we need to tighten up the student medication protocal. For any student with complex meds and/or cannot self-administer we will need to have an in-depth teacher/parent discussion regarding said medications prior to trip registration. As teachers, we have far too many students for whom we are responsible to be able to monitor individual students' meds. Outlining medication procedures and protocals will give both teacher and parents peace of mind knowing that each child's medications will be properly administered.


Important Note for ALL Instrumental Music Students:

Each Student should have a durable Name Tag firmly affixed to their instrument case!



The Social Contracts for the Advanced Band, Cadet Band, and String Orchestra can be viewed on their own special page.
