Students in Grade 5-6 build foundational music skills through rhythm and melody development, with a focus on note-reading.  This prepares them for the entry to the junior band in Grade 7.  The junior band has come to enjoy the sense of community that group playing offers.  By Grade 8-9, the senior band is prepared to participate in a number of local festivals and competitions.  Both junior and senior bands experience an over-night band camp with qualified clinicians that provide intensive skill development in the students' selected instrument.

Students in the band commit to participating in before-school rehearsal several times a week, in addition to two band classes during the school day per week.
