Good Day, and welcome to Dean McElroy's personal webpage. I am the director of all instrumental music (string orchestra, concert band, marching band, colorguard, and drumline) at SJHHS. I have been teaching music for 17 years - 10 at Aliso Niguel High School, and every year of our existence at San Juan Hills - including being part of the planning team the year before we opened. Teaching is a strong passion of mine, and being part of the musical development of young adults throughout the years has been an honor. Personally, I a married, have three children (15, 11, 7), am a huge Angel, Laker, and Charger fan, and I love to swim.
Please follow the course links to the left for day to day happenings in each class. The full instrumental music calendar is below. Please feel free to email me with any questions about the Instrumental Music Program.
