Welcome to YLMS Instrumental Music

Music, as a universal language, is a basic expression of human beings. Music provides opportunities for an expression of feeling, a discovery of what the self is like, and builds bridges of understanding, respect, and appreciation between individuals and groups in ways that no other part of the educational experience can duplicate. Every child should have the opportunity to explore and develop his/her abilities to perform, create, listen, and understand music.

The Yorba Linda Middle School Instrumental Music Department is an organization dedicated to musical growth. I feel very fortunate to be working with such an accomplished group of students. With the many classes offered, I look forward to the opportunity to work with each and every student to develop his/her individual abilities.

As the music director, it is my responsibility to provide the students with a comfortable learning environment that includes participation, trust, commitment, and teamwork. I believe this environment is further developed through time, effort, and respect for one another. Through the combined efforts of the students, the parents, and myself we can reach new heights of growth throughout the program.


It takes a lot of resources to run our quality music programs and a little effort goes a long way to earn money for the program. As a non-profit organization, the YLMS Instrumental Music Booster Club depends on the generosity of donors to help cover our operating costs. We thank you in advance for any support you can provide. The YLMS-IMBC is a non-profit 501c(3) organization. Your contribution may be deductible for income tax purposes.
