Starting soon…. Korematsu’s Free 5th/6th Grade Band Class

Good news for 5th and 6th grade musicians from Fairmont, Kensington, Madera, Harding, Washington, Mira Vista and Riverside Elementary Schools!

Tiffany Carrico, band director at Korematsu Middle School will hold Wednesday evening band classes once again this year. This class provides the unique chance for musicians from different elementary schools to work together on a regular basis and develop their instrumental music skills.
It has been wonderfully successful the last few years and, once again, Ms. Carrico is holding the class free of charge.

Classes begin on Wednesday, Oct. 4 and will run weekly from 6-7pm in the Korematsu Middle School band room (D109). The band will have a couple of chances to perform during the school year (details to be announced later).

Ms. Carrico generally does not have instruments to loan out since the Korematsu program has expanded greatly in recent years. She hopes that all kids will be signing up for in-school band classes (if they don’t own an instrument) so they can check out a district instrument.

Please send Ms. Carrico a quick email ( ) or give her a call (510-717-0718) if you would like your child to participate.
