School Band

Our school is extremely lucky to have such a wonderful band. We are also blessed with the honour of having a very gifted Band Director Miss Isabella Harvey. Miss Harvey has recently performed as part of the Australian Ballet Orchestra and was crowned Champion of Champions at the Yahama National Band Championships in Brisbane last month.

Our band has some talented musicians who play the following instruments: flute, trumpet, saxophone, keyboard, drums, guitar, trombone and violin. The band currently has 13 students both junior and senior members.

The students in the band are currently in years 3-6 however, we would take younger students and mentor them. Any interested students would be auditioned by Miss Harvey prior to successful appointment to the band. The student would then be placed in the band on a trial basis as a beginner for a term.

The band rehearses every Tuesday morning from 8.10am – 9.10am for full band members and the juniors rehearse for half this allocated time. The band members must all be receiving formal musical instruction. The cost involved for band is $80 per term for full band members and $40 for beginners. Musical lessons and instrument purchase or hire is additional.

The band is an integral part of the school and can certainly enrich a child's schooling experience. Our band is currently preparing for assembly performances, The Ryde Esteidford  and The Family Fun Day at Asquith Boys High School. We are always keen to hear from prospective students who have been receiving musical instruction for at least 6 months and are dedicated to their music.

The band is currently in need of new members. Anyone who is keen to learn the  trumpet or anyone who would like to know what sort of instrument they could play we welcome their enquiry.

If you are interested in joining the band for some toe tapping fun please contact Miss Isabella Harvey or Mrs Abby West 0421 922 537 or abbywest1@bigpond.com.
