Middle School Band and Orchestra Registration








JSerra Catholic High School is launching an after-school band and orchestra program for middle school age students. We will begin rehearsals in JSerra’s Instrumental Music Room (Room 3116) on November 13, 2023, with two levels: 

Beginning Program:

  • Little to no experience necessary
  • Monday and Wednesday afternoons
  • 4:00 to 4:50 p.m.
  • Limited to beginner-friendly instruments

Intermediate/Advanced Program:

  • 1+ years of experience playing on a band or orchestra instrument
  • Monday and Wednesday afternoons
  • 5:00 to 5:50 p.m.
  • Open to all woodwind, brass, percussion, piano, and string instruments

Students in both levels will get to work closely with JSerra faculty and students, culminating in a performance with the JSerra Symphony Orchestra at JSerra’s outdoor festival Arts Showcase on May 4, 2024.

Students who do not already have an instrument will need to rent one before our first rehearsal on November 13 (rentals cost about $25-$75 per month depending on the instrument). We recommend renting from Bertrand’s Music in Mission Viejo or Irvine Art & Music Center. We will be hosting an Instrument Exploration Night at JSerra on November 1, 2023, at 6:00 p.m., to help beginners choose their instrument.

PROGRAM FEE: $800.00* program fee + instrument rental (approximately $25 to $75 per month, depending on the instrument.)

*Scholarships may be available for families in need (please reach out to David Amrein for more information: david.amrein@jserra.org)
