Since its humble beginnings in 2011, the Burton Band Program has been educating students at Burton High School in the virtues of music.



I actually didn’t like band at first, but glad I stayed because the people and percussion really changed my life.
— Emily Tang, Alumni and Former Font Ensemble Captain

What we offer

The Burton Band Program is comprised of an advanced band class (5th Period), a advanced percussion class (2nd Period) , and an intermediate band class (6th and 7th Period) . Students may also choose to participate in Color Guard/Winter Guard, Jazz Band, Rock Club and a Competitive Percussion Ensemble. Being the only band program in the San Francisco Unified District that allows students to take band all four years of their high school career, the band program offers a rich music learning experience for all students through a meaningful and supportive culture that encourages and builds character and relationships.
