School Band » Home


The Sutter Middle School Music Department, under the direction of Mr. Jose Fausto, boasts a yearly enrollment of over 130 students. We offer a wide array of ensembles in which students may explore their musical and creative sides. Available ensembles include Beginning Band, Piano, and our premier performance groups, the Sutter Drum Line and Sutter Advanced Band. 
Course Syllabus, assignments, handouts, forms, current grades and other resources are all found on your child's Schoology page. Students can also message Mr. Fausto directly through Schoology. 
Spend some time with us! You are more than welcome to stop by the band room in person to find out about all of the exciting things the Sutter Middle School Music Program is doing!  Also, if you'd like to help the groups at various performances and appearances, please see Mr. Fausto before or after school, or send an email
Please Note!
Parent Volunteers and Chaperones needed! Contact Mr. Fausto if you are available. 
Note to Parents and Students:
All of the performances and after school rehearsals, when scheduled, are mandatory for Advanced Band members. Every Advanced Band student will be required to be at these rehearsals and appearances. Please assist your son or daughter in making sure they are at these rehearsals and performances on time.  Also, please remind them that not only is it an honor to be in the band, but that the band members are earning their grades through these rehearsals and performances. Therefore, we must have 100% participation at all events and appearances. If there are any issues or concerns with scheduled events, it is best to meet with Mr. Fausto in person before or after school. Failure to do so may result in a lower grade. 
If you wish to support the music department with a gift or donation, you could check out our DonorsChoose project.
