Introduction to music at Burlingame High School

The BHS Music Department band and choir classes are open to all BHS students and begin on the first day of school as part of the students’ regular class schedule.

The Band Program is directed by Kyoko Yamamoto.

The Choral Program is directed by Shawn Reifschneider.

The BHS bands and choirs entertain at home football and basketball games, pep rallies, community events, parades, graduation, and numerous concerts. As part of the music education curriculum, all band classes combine together to form the Marching Band and Pep Band. In addition the band and choral ensembles annually compete at Music Festivals such as Heritage Festivals and California Music Educators Association (CMEA) Festivals.

Those enrolled in band and choir are also offered an opportunity to audition for select groups that rehearse outside of the regular school day. Jazz Band is offered before school, while Chamber Singers is scheduled after school. Auditions are in the spring for the following school year.
