SMALL ENSEMBLES

​Small ensembles offer a unique opportunity to rehearse and perform with a small number of your friends.  This can be like instruments or a mixed instrumental ensemble.  You just need to get a group together and find a time when one of the teachers can coach your group.  This provides a way for you to play one to a part and try out some more complex or interesting styles of music.  These small ensembles perform at school events, community events and during our school concerts.  Historically we have had sax quartets, flute ensembles, clarinet choirs, percussion ensembles, low brass ensembles, brass quintets, trombone quartets and trumpet ensembles.  There are lots of ways for you to get involved.


MUSIC COUNCIL

​The department also has a music council which provides leadership opportunities for music students in all grades.  This group runs events in the department and helps with promotion of the department throughout the year.  They also provide mentoring opportunities for students in the department.  Grade 9 students are encouraged to put forth an application around November to become part of the team.


​MUSIC TUTORS

​Each instrument has an "expert" in the department who is available to help others with all aspect of their playing.  Emails are available in the department and these students can be contacted for assistance with playing concerns, recording concerns, theory concerns or history help.  Anything we do in the department has someone available for help!


​TRAVEL

​Each year the Music Department embarks on either a performance tour or a music appreciation tour.  We either travel over March Break when we go international or during April or May if we are travelling to the United States.  These are very exciting opportunities to experience other cultures or immerse yourself in the music of the area to which we travel.  These tours are an extension of the courses being taught and it provides the ability to have the content of the courses come to life!  In past years, we have travelled to Washington D.C., Italy, Chicago, England & Scotland, New York and Austria & Germany.
