From the Music Directors

To the incoming and returning Bulldog musical families:

Welcome to the Portola Music Department. Whether your student is in the instrumental music programs, choirs, marching band or color guard, this will be an exciting and busy year. Students will have countless opportunities to make friends, develop skills, and grow as musicians.

Nearly 40% of all PHS students are involved in the Music  Department and we can’t wait for that to grow as we expand our course offerings.  To ensure all programs are successful, WE NEED YOUR HELP, PARENTS!  We hope to see you at our many concerts and community events throughout the 2018-2019 school year.

Desmond Stevens, Kyle Traska, and Adrian Rangel-Sanchez
