The band program is open to students in grades 3 through 8, under the direction of Mr. Shonty. Beginning in grade 3, students may learn to play the recorder, learning to read music and understand the basics of the instrument. In grade 4, students may begin to explore the instrument of their choice, with weekly band lessons during the school day and full band rehearsals before school and at recess time.
Two major concerts are given each year. Advanced students may also be invited to participate in programs outside of our school, and lessons are offered throughout the summer at St. Bernard School as well. For more information, please contact the school office at 860-745-5275.
