We recommend parents purchase SmartMusic for their children to enhance and improve musical skills. With SmartMusic, students play in context with progressional background accompaniment, giving them pitch and rhythmic reference, and provides immediated feedback onscreen. SmartMusic is available for desktops, laptops and tablets.
Stanley Music believes that all children should be allowed to play and, as skill levels progress through the years, each child should be challenged based on ability and interest level.

Band is an elective for all students at Stanley Middle School. Currently, there are four bands: Cadet (beginner), Bronze, Silver, and Symphonic (formerly known as Gold). Students are placed at their ability level at the beginning of the school year.
NEW THIS YEAR!! ALL STANLEY 8TH GRADE BAND MEMBERS are invited to play with the Acalanes Pep Band at the football game on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1. No need to prep; it's a show up and play event and most tunes are familiar. It's a great way for the 8th graders to get a peek into the AHS band experience!
PARENTS: Please read the "Parent Info" section of the website regarding band philosophy, instruments, etc.
