San Marcos High School in Santa Barbara
has an exciting group of award-winning bands,
with a year-long program of activities.
Summer Band Camp
Marching Band rehearsals take place over the summer. Optional (but strongly encouraged) practices will occur on June 11-13 (9:00-12:30pm) and July 9-11 (9:00-12:30pm) in Room M-1 at San Marcos. This is a great opportunity to meet the instructors and other band members, practice as a group, and learn more about the fall show. You do not need to be enrolled in the class to attend summer practice.
A parent meeting for Marching Band and prospective Jazz Band students will be held on Tuesday, June 11 at 6pm in Room M-1. Information about the fall Instrumental Music classes (Marching Band, Color Guard and Jazz Band) will be provided.
In addition to the June & July practices, mandatory Marching Band rehearsals take place Monday, August 12-Friday, August 16 (9-12noon, 1-4pm, 6-9pm) with a family dinner and showcase on Friday, August 16th. Students are excused from practice during Royal Return. Auditions for the Jazz Ensemble are held at the beginning of the fall term, with twice weekly after-school rehearsals commencing shortly thereafter.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Mr. Kiyoi. Thanks for your continued support of the San Marcos High Royals Bands!
