Instrumental Band Experiences for Young & Old(er)
Beginning in the fall of 2021, along with the addition of our beginner instrumental progrms, M&P is pleased to also introducing three instrumental band experiences for all ages. With a focus on inclusion and affordability, these options include the Calgary Community Band (levels I & II) for ages 10-18 and the YYC Concert Band for ages 14+.
Calgary Community Band – levels I & II (ages 10-18)
CCB is the next step for our students from the ‘Band Together’ program and also for those just joining us, it is a great way for students to get a headstart on their instrumental band experience or to supplement their private lessons work with a group music experience. Placement in CCB Level I or Level II is based on experience, and students can expect to be challenged with a variety of music as they enjoy performing songs together every week AND at a number of concerts during the year.
For ages 10-18, this 90-minute weekly group class runs for the entire year (28 weeks). Materials are included in the class fee of $400 – which is payable in one, two, or (10) monthly installments – along with a registration fee of $36 (max $72/family/year). Students require their own instrument for this class.
YYC Concert Band (ages 14-99)
YYCCB is the final step in our instrumental band experience for students of all ages! Musicians in the program students can expect to play a fun and challenging variety of music as they perform songs together every week AND at a number of concerts during the year.
For ages 14-99, this 2-hour weekly group class runs for 27 weeks from September to May. Materials are included in the class fee of $285 – which is payable in one, two, or (10) monthly installments – along with a registration fee of $36 (max $72/family/year). Students require their own instrument for this class.
We look forward to seeing you LIVE, IN-PERSON and TOGETHER at our large and safe studios this fall for these great new programs!
