5th Grade Band

 
 
Welcome! We are excited to share that the elementary band program will continue thanks to the generous, continuous support of the Redondo Beach Educational Foundation (RBEF). The 5th grade band teachers are Mrs. Zoetewey and Mr. Buchen. We are a traveling team, visiting each school site twice each week to provide high quality music instruction. By working together, we are able to focus on specific instruments in smaller groups, giving students more focused attention and instruction.
 
 
Join us for our "Last Day Of Band Concert" (which is on the last day of band this year)
Monday June 10th 9:50-10:20
