Band & Guitar Ensemble

The aim of the band and guitar ensemble programs is to provide musical enrichment through the playing of an instrument. The school band program offers Year 3-6 students an opportunity to join the training or concert band, which is directed by a professional conductor. Students train twice a week and play at various performances throughout the year, both at the school and offsite. Band students also get the opportunity to attend a two-day band camp. Students joining the band for the first time will start in the training band and then progress to the concert band in their second year.

 

 

Instruments played include:

Flute
Alto Saxophone
Tenor Saxophone
Clarinet
Trumpet
Trombone
Euphonium
French Horn
Bass Guitar (not acoustic)
Keyboards
Percussion

 

Students joining the guitar ensemble for the first time will start in the debut ensemble and then graduate to the intermediate ensemble after one year. .

Band Committee and Volunteers

The WPS band is a self-funded sub-committee of the Wakehurst P&C and is managed by a team of parent volunteers. To operate well and share workload the committee must consist of at least 3-4 people.

New volunteers are always welcome.

For further information regarding the band please contact the Band Coordinator by email band@wpspandc.com
