Greetings! Thanks for visiting my web page. I am the Band Director here at Hayward High.  Hayward High's music program has a great tradition, and I am very proud to be a part of it.  I truly believe that music has the power to positively impact the lives of my students in myriad ways, as they will have the chance to perform, compose, and analyze music in a number of settings.  The music program offers a diverse selection of classes that includes Guitar Ensemble, Piano, Marching/Concert Band, Jazz Band, and String Orchestra. I hope to be offering A.P. Music Theory in the coming school year as well.  For more information about the Hayward High music program please visit our website at  There you will find information about upcoming events, competition results, and ways that you can help the Music Program. You will also find many great photos featuring the PRIDE of Hayward High showing off their talents. Go Farmers!
