Good Day, and welcome to Dean McElroy's personal webpage. I am the director of all instrumental music (all band and orchestras, marching band, pit orchestra, and AP music theory) at SJHHS. I began my teaching career at Aliso Niguel High School, and I was fortunate to be able to be honored with the Visual and Performing Arts spot on the planning team for San Juan Hills High School. I have been here since the school's opening in 2007. In that time, I've seen our program grow from less than 20 Freshmen only in each band and orchestra into 2 bands and 3 orchestras - playing some of the top literature at a very high level. 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 (19,15,11), am a huge Angel, Laker, and Charger fan,
