The Fort Collins High School Music Department focuses on student achievement in music. Our goal is to help students understand music concepts and performance skills so they can succeed here at FCHS and throughout the state in activities such as all state ensembles and state music festivals. The department is also committed to giving college bound music students the skills they need to succeed post high school. This is accomplished by having high quality music ensembles, (both large and chamber groups) musicals, cabaret performances and an AP Music Theory Course. Finally, the music department serves the non-traditional music students as well, by giving them opportunities to be involved in courses such music technology, beginning music theory, beginning guitar and history of rock and roll.
