Moorpark Music Staff

As the state/school district budget only provides funding for one music teacher, like so many endangered music programs, we need to fundraise in order to exist. We are extremely grateful to have the Moorpark Instrumental Music Boosters support in raising funds, which allows us to provide the additional staff required to offer a comprehensive music program. Our talented and dedicated professional staff teach with passion, challenging our students musically, artistically and emotionally, and supporting each student to reach their full potential.
