The Mark Keppel High School Instrumental Music Program welcomes all students for comprehensive instruction in instrumental music. Classes promote students' proficiency in the California State Standards for Music, and students also experience opportunities for a sense of community, service, and leadership.
Courses are open to all students, grades 9-12. Students with no prior musical training are eligible to enroll in Guitar. Those with experience can audition to enter Band and Orchestra.
All courses meet Visual and Performing Arts/Fine Arts requirements for high school graduation and entrance to the University of California and the California State University systems. In addition, Band meets the PE graduation requirement.
All classes perform at least two times a year. On-campus performances include the Winter Concert, the Guitar/Drum Show, and Some Enchanted Evening. Band also performs at school rallies, sporting events, and community service events, as well as competes in field show and parades. Every spring, Orchestra collaborates with the Drama Program to produce a Broadway musical.
