Symphonic Band


Band members will learn how to read notes and play musical instruments even if they do not have any knowledge of music before joining the band.  Our experienced and qualified instructors will be able to guide you to ensure that you are able to do so as quickly as possible. Band seniors will be mentors to assist you in your journey into the world of music which is enriching, empowering and fun!

In your journey into this fascinating world of music you will be able to develop your character such as:

  • a confident person who adaptable and resilient as you venture different styles and genre in music;
  • a self-directed learner when you practice your parts individually during sectionals or at home ;
  • an active contributor who is able to work effectively in team when you come to gather to play and enjoy music as one band with one sound!

All band members are responsible as they are required to play their parts well as this will be crucial in the songs/performances. Each band member role is important and significant when the band come together to perform, regardless how small their part is.

Practices inculcates mentoring and peer coaching. Such activities promotes not on team work but also for band members to take an active part in bettering the lives of others around them and a deep sense of ownership.
