Music

Music: Grades 5 and 6 
Students receive music every other day for half of a semester (a total of two semesters) at RT Alderman. The focus of the class is musical literacy - learning how to read notes and rhythms and applying that knowledge to a variety of instruments. Students have the opportunity to play marimbas, recorder, boomwhackers, ukuleles and handbells. 

The following clubs are offered for Grade 5 and 6:
• Choir
• Handbells

Band: Grades 7-9
Students take band 2 to 3 times per week with the focus around musicianship and ensemble playing. Students have the opportunity to perform at the Alberta International Band Festival and the Winter and Spring Concert. The band students also participate in a two night camp where they receive clinics on their instruments and extended rehearsal time. 

The following clubs are offered for Band students;
• Jazz Band
