Through these courses, students can receive PE and Fine Arts Credits.



For seating purposes for string  players only.  All string players will be allowed into the Symphony Orchestra.  This same audition will be used to evaluate potential participation into the Advanced String Orchestra.  For other other musicians (flute, clarinet, etc.) for evaluation and potential enrollment into the symphony orchestra.

All Students must play a short piece or excerpt.  No less than 30 seconds and no more than 2 minutes.  In addition, two scales.  One must be concert D Major and the second is of your choosing. 

In our current situation, a video recording of your playing will be acceptable.  Send it to Mr. Castillo at jcastillo@fjuhsd.org .
