Elementary Band with Mrs. Andrade

Welcome to Elementary Band!

I am thrilled that you have decided to join the band program here in Eastvale, CA!

At the Elementary level, all students are introduced to the basics of music reading as well as how to play the first few notes on their instrument. All students will also gain an appreciation of music, learn determination through hours of practice, and experience what it is like to perform in a band.


Please click on your school above to find schedule information.

Please click on "Beginning Band" or "Advanced Band" for monthly lesson plans and helpful tutorial videos.

When Can I Join Band?

Band classes in Corona-Norco Unified are offered to 5th and 6th grade students. All band students receive one hour of instruction every week; some band classes are twice a week for 30 minutes each class and some band classes are once a week for one hour. Beginning Band is the class for students starting a new instrument for the first time. In this class, the students will play songs in unison from their method book. Advanced Band is the class for students playing the same instrument for their second year. In this class, the students will play songs in unison from their method book as well as play band arrangements (sheet music songs) in a variety of styles.
