My Students

Our music department is booming - we're at a point where all of our classes are literally overflowing with a diversity of students. Students range from complete beginners with no previous experience, to students playing since a young age, to those in top honors ensembles.

Regardless of experience, what makes our music students stand out is their hunger and thirst for new experiences.

Students can choose from a variety of classes including: Keyboard, Guitar, Beginning Band, Beginning Strings, Advanced Band (Marching and Concert Band), Percussion Ensemble, Mariachi, Chorus, Chamber Choir, and AP Music Theory. Other extra-curricular groups include: Pep Band and Jazz Ensemble.

My Project

It only started with a handful of students last year, but Venice High School has its own mariachi group: Los Mariachi Gondoleros. We have the instruments, the music, and most recently, the proper storage, but now we need the right accessories to play and perform.

This is our first year offering Mariachi as a class, and we want to start of right.

We need to accommodate the curriculum for a much larger amount of students. We are so excited to offer this class that not only is fun to perform, but fosters a respect for a musical style and culture.

Your contribution goes towards hooked neckstraps so that students can hold up guitars and vihuelas properly when practicing and performing. Picks are needed for our guitars.
