Since 1985, Assistance League of Flintridge has administered an Instrumental Music program during the school year for students in grades 4 through 6. Classes are held at the three La Cañada Unified School District elementary schools, either before or after school and at ALF on Saturdays. Students receive one hour per week of instruction in an ensemble setting supplemented by off-campus “sectionals” and extra practices.

Subject to CDC and LA County COVID-19 guidelines, students will have the opportunity to perform in two concerts a year, in the winter and spring at Lanterman Auditorium.  Advanced* students in String Orchestra and Concert Band will have the opportunity to audition for a solo part in the Spring Concert.

For 2022-2023, Instrumental Music is back at the three elementary school sites and at ALF. Because our classes are held at LCUSD campuses, the program will be subject to LA County and LCUSD COVID-19 protocols. Consequently, ALF will require masking ** if it is recommended for the safety of the students as well as our instructors. ALF will review and update its procedures as COVID-19 and LCUSD guidelines evolve. Details regarding specific LA County COVID-19 protocols in place for music classes will be provided at the Informational Parent Meeting and posted on our website prior to the start of classes.
* Advanced classes are for students who have been in ALF’s Instrumental Music program for at least one year, or with permission from the instructor
** PPE will be provided by ALF, but we are asking that parents consider a $20 donation to help defray this cost

Congratulations to all the students who participated in the ALF Instrumental Music Spring concerts on April 26 & 28, 2022 and to the instructors and families who supported them.  Here’s a small glimpse of Beginning Band, Beginning Strings, Concert Band and String Orchestra at Paradise Canyon Elementary.
