Excellence in Music and Motion

The El Segundo High School Band's purpose is to provide an opportunity to learn, rehearse and perform music for all interested students who demonstrate the desire, ability, and proper attitude.  Students in the band learn self-discipline, emotional control during times of stress, coping skills and how to accept success with humility.  Each year the now 80 person band includes some of the highest ranking students of the school including valedictorians, salutatorians and “top ten.”

The ESHS Marching Band boasts many 1st place trophies and 3rd in the California State Marching Band Championships two years in a row.  In 2014 the band grew to around 100 students, moving the Marching Band into a higher division for the field show competitions.  The Concert Band has now ranked first at the Forum Music Festival's Judges Invitational for the past three years.

The program is primarily funded through fundraising and donations from family, friends and community.  The El Segundo Concert Band and the El Segundo Band Parents have taken on the challenge of creating new and innovative fundraising events to raise $80,000+ each year.
