Music During Summer Break

Summer Music at Seattle Public Schools

The Summer Music Program is a way for students to continue their music learning during the summer months. The program is designed for students entering grades 5-9 (fourth grade completed). Students must have completed at least one year of instrumental instruction. Teachers are certificated public school music teachers.

Summer Music 2022 Postponed

Summer Music is postponed for yet another year due to COVID-19.  We want to provide a strong and consistent program for all of our students and families in both the North and South ends of the city. Based on when we needed to make a decision for Summer Music, the health and safety guidance for performing arts wasn’t in a place where we could ensure programming during the summer. While we are disappointed in not providing Summer Music this year, we hope to welcome back students to the program and provide this opportunity in the Summer of 2023!

Seattle All-City Band

Established in 1951 by Seattle Public Schools, All-City Band has a reputation for excellence in music education, student leadership, and entertainment. The band brings together students from schools throughout the greater Seattle area to entertain in upwards of 20 parades and community celebrations each summer.

Planning for the 2022 All-City Band is underway. We are expecting a full return to our normal summer program with all the traditional parades. Information on the program, including registration information is available at All-City Band. The first rehearsal is currently set for Tuesday June 21st at Memorial Stadium.  For more information contact Dr. Marcus Pimpleton, mjpimpleton@seattleschools.org.
