The Music Boosters are a Not-for-Profit organization that was founded to help the Double Peak School Music Program meet its financial needs & obligations, as the Music Program is NOT funded by the San Marcos School District. We also are responsible for much of the administration of the approximately 200 students in the Music Program. And last but not least, we help ensure that the students are comfortable and prepared both in the band room and during the various off-campus activities. Booster meetings are held monthly in the Music Booster Room. Anyone is welcome to attend – please check the calendar for the next meeting date.
