In Alum Rock Union School District, every student has the opportunity to learn music. Each elementary school has a beginning band program offered to students in 4th and 5th grade. Students can continue their musical career at any middle school where we offer both intermediate and advanced band classes. Additionally, every student will take a piano or general music class in 4th and 5th grade.
Our VAPA cluster schools have additional opportunities for students to expand their music education. Cureton, Lyndale and Linda Vista offer choir in grades 1-3, Joseph George Middle School offers drumline, piano lab and show choir and Linda Vista offers handbells.
