Mountain View High School Orchestras

When you’re involved in Mountain View High School Orchestras, you know you are a part of something awesome. It takes all of us—students, parents, staff, and administrators—to keep our program in tune and moving in concerted tempo. We’ll leave it to the maestro to focus on conducting and share all the logistics about orchestra right here. 

A Message from Our Director

Welcome to Mountain View High School’s orchestra program. As director of orchestras at Mountain View, I have had the privilege of teaching and directing students for over 25 years. Over the years, I have had the joy of seeing my students develop a love for learning music as they come to realize that the process of making music exercises the mind and enriches the soul. Tapping into this innate love for music, I strive to teach them musical skills and spark their desire to enjoy playing music throughout their lives.
