Edie Rice - Education Director
The El Segundo After School Band Programs (elementary and middle school) are now in their 20th year with Mrs. Edie Rice as the director. In addition to the ensemble classes, students also receive individualized instruction from professional musicians and accomplished teachers each week.
Periodically, we hire performing, or education groups that stand out, or have a special expertise that we know to be invaluable to the music students in our community. We finance them to put on shows or clinics for students.
Recently, Alliance Brass, a brass ensemble that performs classical, jazz, and pop music founded in 2010 in Chicago, Illinois. Did a tour of our elementary, middle, and high school to put on performances and clinics for our students.
SBMA helps to fund the award winning band program at El Segundo High School including the ES High School Marching Band. Ensembles include the Eagle Pride Marching Band, the El Segundo High School Symphonic Band, and the El Segundo High School Concert Band.
