Private study on a musical instrument is a great way to enhance a student’s investment in their musical development. We are fortunate to have members of both Vail and Tucson who are willing to work with our students in a one-on-one environment. Below is a list of director-verified teachers, available for private instruction.


One of the many ways for our students to showcase their talents, representing Cienega High School is to audition for and perform with local, state, and nationally sponsored honor bands. These groups attract the best musicians from a given region and come together to perform great music. Moreover, these ensembles are a great way for our students to connect with other musicians their age through a common love for music!

Other Extracurricular Ensemble Opportunities

In addition to participating in a school music program/ensemble, extracurricular participation music is essential to nurturing fundamentally sound musicianship.
