Our band director is Mr. Craig Hirotsuka, known around campus as "Mr. H."  Mr. H has 29 years of experience teaching private lessons as well as classroom teaching. He has worked at a number of local schools in the Mountain View Elementary School District, as well as Mountain View High School, Cupertino High School, Santa Teresa High School, and Fremont Union High School District.  Mr. Hirotsuka also currently teaches at St. Simon, St. Joseph Mountain View, and at McAuliffe Elementary. He is proficient in all wind and percussion instruments and is comfortable teaching beginning through advanced students. With his energetic style and welcoming, friendly manner, “Mr. H” has brought new life and enthusiasm to SJC’s band program.  Mr. H joined our school community in 2011 and works very closely with Mrs. Belloni to further develop the musical education of our band students as well as to grow participation in our band ensembles and increase our band’s performance opportunities.
