     The mission of the Esperanza Band program is to instill in all students:
    • A lasting enjoyment, appreciation, understanding and love of music.

    • Develop character traits and skills necessary for life-long success.

    • The desire to celebrate and respect diversity.

    We will ensure this by:

    • Providing opportunities to perform, listen, interpret, and express vocal and instrumental music, individually and in ensembles.

    • Teaching students to read, write and create music.

    • Immersing students in the study of a wide variety of musical genres.

    • Being open to new experiences by doing their best.

  • Band Opportunities
