Trafalgar School Band is Back! / Trafalgar 学校乐队回来了!

After a long pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to resume the Trafalgar Band in-person this year! Erin Marks – our beloved band teacher – will be returning to provide fabulous and fun instructions. A second band teacher who focuses on brass instruments will be joining Erin to teach our band.

2022-23 Rehearsal schedule – rehearsals will take place in the Activity Room twice a week: Monday 7:50 – 8:50 am and Wednesday 7:50 – 8:50 am. There will be 57 rehearsals starting from Wednesday Oct 12, 2022 to Wednesday June 14, 2023. We are also planning to have a Christmas concert and a school year-end concert for the school community.

Eligibility – Any grade 4 to 7 music loving student is welcome. No musical background is required.

Fees – Tuition fees will be collected to cover the activity room rental, liability insurance, teacher’s salaries and music supplies. The amount is TBD and will depend on the final enrollment.

Registration and Waiver of Liability Agreement Forms – The forms can be filled out online here:

Instrument Selection – Students can choose from one of the following:

  • Woodwind: Clarinet, Flute, Oboe
  • Brass: Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn*, Baritone/Euphonium

*French Horn students are strongly recommended to seek additional 1:1 private lessons.

Students who are interested in percussion (e.g., drums, triangle, xylophone, etc.) are required to learn a woodwind or brass instrument. Each student will take turns to play during the rehearsal.

The registration form requests that the parent specifies a first, second and third choice of instrument. We will make every effort to honour the first choice, but we want to make sure the band has a balance of instruments. Ideally, there will be at least 3 of each instrument except for percussion.

Instrument Rental – If you need to arrange an instrument rental, we recommend going to Tapestry Music. Information about their instrument rental options is available on their website ( and the rentals can be arranged on-line. Instrument pick up is at their Vancouver location (4440 West 10th Avenue). Another great option is Long & McQuade – Both companies are well versed in working with school bands, and offer rent-to-own programs if that is of interest.
