After School BandAfter School Band

After School Band is back for the 14th year!  FEF is excited to offer ASB to the young musicians of FUSD!

The After-School Band Program provides both beginning and intermediate instruction on woodwind, brass and percussion instruments for 4th-6th graders at all 27 of Fremont Unified School District's elementary schools.

This section of the Fremont Education Foundation site offers detailed information about our program. We invite you to explore it!


As the Attendance Area Concerts begin, you will see how much your great kids have learned and, more importantly, how much fun they have performing music for a big, live audience! We ask for just a few minutes of your time. Click on this link for the information sheet for the "After School Band Challenge" fundraiser.

If you provide 10 or more contact emails on your list, your child's name will be entered in drawings for $100 and $50 gift cards for Allegro Music and/or C&L Music stores! Your child's name will also be added to the drawing one additional time for each paid sponsor you generate, so remember to share the word on social media, using the share links on your contact list page as well!

PLUS the band class with the best participation (highest percentage of students with 10+ email contacts entered) will be awarded a group pizza party! Be sure to choose your child's school band from the list provided when you register.

You are welcome to enter more than 10 sponsors—in fact, enter as many as you can, the sky is the limit! Read the information sheet and let's get started!


Funding

The ASB program is not paid for by your tax dollars! It is entirely funded by the generosity of our band families and community members. Help keep our successful ASB program thriving as we enter our 14th year! With your support, bands will keep on playing, on all 27 elementary school campuses in the Fremont Unified School District--directly benefiting over 1,000 students!

With over 1,000 students on our rosters and an ever growing demand for more classes and more weeks, we gratefully accept contributions of $250, $150 or $50--whatever you can afford. Every donation counts! And, remember to check if your employer offers matching, it can often double the impact of your donation!

Testimonials

The After-School Band Program provides both beginning and intermediate instruction on woodwind, brass and percussion instruments for 4th-6th graders at all 27 of Fremont Unified School District's elementary schools. We are happy to again provide 25 weeks of instruction from mid-October through late April.

Each band will participate in an Attendance Area Concert at their local high school. This concert is a wonderful opportunity for the students to work towards a performance and hear the other musicians at elementary and junior high school levels.


"It's surprising how much learning is packed into a once-a-week session. My son has gained so much - not just musical learning, but self confidence, and the value of teamwork. Keep up the great work!"

-- a band parent on 2004-2005 survey

"Actually surprised at how much progress he made given a group lesson only once a week”.

-- a band parent on 2008 - 2009 survey

“An outstanding program. The end of the year concert was great!!"
