The Trafalgar School Band is an extracurricular music program funded by participating students and their families. Students who are in Grade 5-7 are eligible to play in the band. Participation in a school band is rewarding educationally and socially. Our goal is to make it both fun and productive for the band students. No previous musical experience is required, although if the students already know how to read music, that is a bonus. Our 2 band teachers, Erin Marks and Ellen Marple are both professional musicians and music educators who love sharing music with people of all ages.
The senior band meets every Monday and Wednesday from 8:00 to 8:45 am and the beginning band meets every Tuesday and Thursday from 8:00 to 8:45 am during the school year. Band students get to choose from a wide variety of woodwind and bass instruments such as flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, trumpet, trombone, baritone, saxophone, oboe, French horn and tuba. The bands will perform in many school concerts, have joint practices with Prince of Wales Secondary and Kitsilano Secondary and attend the KPU International Music Festivals. We will also invite professional musicians and school band directors to offer us clinician workshops from time to time.
Please contact the Trafalgar School Band Parent Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org) if there are any further questions.
