The Music curriculum is based on the knowledge that everyone can learn to play an instrument.  The curriculum is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills that they need to achieve this goal.

Successful Music students:
  • practice regularly
  • participate in Repertoire to enhance their skills
  • sign out instruments over the summer so they can continue to enjoy their instrument
  • participate in some of the many co-curricular music events held during the school year (like coffee house and Remembrance Day assemblies) to learn new things and develop leadership skills.

Music Courses in Grades 9 to 12:

Music courses are available to all students regardless of previous experience in Music at the Grade 8 level.   Students who choose to participate in Concert Band are encouraged to register for Repertoire.  Repertoire is an additional course that takes place before the school day.  Its’ inclusion allows students the opportunity to earn a 9th credit for their Concert Band activities.
