Welcome to the Golden Pride Marching Band and Color Guard. Congratulations on your plans to become a member of one of the top marching units in San Diego. Over the years El Camino has earned a reputation as a quality competitive band.

Known as the Golden Pride Marching Band & Color Guard, the ECHS Marching Band is a performance-oriented ensemble that competes at field tournaments and performs at all home football games.  The Golden Pride includes performers in the areas of brass, woodwinds, battery percussion, pit percussion, and color guard.  Rehearsals include the learning of music, movement/marching skills, and ensemble performance skills for the field.  Attired in black and white uniforms with gold trim, the Golden Pride presents a striking and professional appearance.
The primary purpose of this course is to train the members of the Marching Band in the areas of marching and maneuvering. The development of leadership and teamwork will be stressed. Students will participate and perform in scheduled marching band activities. Students will also participate and perform in selected competitions and activities outside the band program. Students help promote spirit by participating in school based activities.
Rehearsal clothing: Proper attire for rehearsals includes athletic shoes with a flexible sole (no boots, high tops or sandal's/thongs), shorts, sweats, or loose pants allowing for unrestricted movement, and an appropriate top such as a band t-shirt or other t-shirt.  For band camp, students should bring their own bottled water.  They should also bring plenty of sun screen as we will be marching and rehearsing outside a lot of the time.  Please check our calendar for event information.  If you have any questions please: contact Mr. James.

If you are not sure about joining the marching band, you should come to band camp and try it for a week.  It's fun and an excellent way to be part of school and part of a great group.  Our student leaders will make every effort to help you learn and enjoy the band experience.

Our parent support group, The Golden Pride Booster Club has regular meetings on the second Tuesday of each month in the band room from 7:00-9:00p.m. All parents are members and are invited to attend.

Plan to join the El Camino Golden Pride Marching Band and Color Guard. It will be the experience of a lifetime.
