The music department at Como has a wide variety of courses with something to interest everyone. Four choirs, two beginning and two select, are offered to provide increasing levels of sophistication to vocal students. Orchestra and two wind bands offer students with experience in instrumental ensembles an opportunity to further develop their skills on their instrument. Piano and Beginning Class Guitar allow students to experience playing those instruments in a group setting. Extra-curricular opportunities through the music department include: an annual musical, a vocal jazz ensemble and an instrumental jazz group and solo and ensemble contest opportunities within Region 4AA.Class
