Band (Grades 4-6)

Continuing from last year, band is offered at no cost to students in fourth to sixth grades as part of the District instrumental music program. Depending on their readiness, students are divided into intermediate and beginning classes that meet twice a week during school hours. Under the instruction of a District band director, they learn to play the flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, and trombone. Throughout the year, students will also get opportunities to perform in concerts. Enrollment was concluded in early September.

Separately, fifth and sixth grade band students from Fairmont are also invited to join the 5th/6th Grade Combined Band Program run by Korematsu (formerly Portola) Middle School Band Director Tiffany Carrico. The class will meet from 6 to 7 p.m. in Room 43 at Korematsu starting Wednesday, September 24. The program, offered at no cost, is open to students coming from Fairmont, Harding, Kensington, and Madera. If interested, please contact Ms. Carrico at 717-0718 or
