Volunteer!

Home ยป Volunteer!

In an era of school budget crises and limited funds for the performing arts, parent volunteers are instrumental (pun intended!) in ensuring a quality music education for all. While students analyze, compose, rehearse, choreograph, and perform music, an energetic and committed team of parent volunteers works behind the scenes to feed, costume, encourage, record, photograph, and transport them. Volunteers also work tirelessly to raise funds to pay for instruction, equipment, transportation, uniforms, scholarships, and more. Join us in our volunteer efforts, and become part of the movement to keep music education alive and thriving at Los Gatos High!
