Why Analy High Music?

What makes the Analy High School music program special? We are committed to providing challenging music classes that are inclusive of all students. Our goal is to create a supportive musical environment to help each student reach their full musical potential. Students are encouraged to express themselves through music and are held to the national and state music standards.

Instrumental Music Activities

Experiences in the program have included participation in community activities, such as the Apple Blossom Parade, performing at the Mystic Theater, and the National Anthem at SF Giants games. Analy High School is also host to the annual Fall Music Festival, which has been an enriching community event for over 20 years. This adjudicated performance and clinic festival brings together ensembles from all over Sonoma County and the surrounding areas, providing feedback from quality music educators early in the school year.
