Our band program is a four-year musical journey that will teach your child to read, play and appreciate music.
No musical experience is necessary.
The CPS Band Program consists of three core ensembles:
- Year 3 Junior or “Training Band”
- Year 4 Intermediate Band
- Year 5/6 Senior Band
There is also an extension ensemble – the Stage Band that involves gifted students from Years 5 and 6. The Stage Band program places an emphasis on the art of improvisation.
There is well-documented evidence that learning a musical instrument and being part of a band program improves outcomes in literacy and numeracy. The band program provides a great opportunity for your child to experience quality music education.
In addition, social skills are also more advanced in children learning music as being a member of the band provides great friendship, and in later years, mentoring opportunities.
So apart from the sheer joy of playing music, there are so many benefits from learning music that your child will get to experience.
