St Peter’s has an extensive Band Programme which is one of the highlights of our school. Over 100 children from Years 3 – 6 are members of our Band Programme.
Junior Band rehearsals are held on Tuesday mornings, before school, and Senior Band rehearsals are held on a Monday, after school. Tuition is in tutorial groups, rotating throughout the school day. Our Senior Band usually plays at the School Assembly each fortnight with our Junior Band making an occasional guest appearance.
We also offer a Training Band programme for beginners. Students involved in the Training Band receive weekly tutelage from a member of our Music Staff and work towards progressing into Junior Band. The Training Band Programme gives students the opportunity to taste what learning an instrument involves before they progress and commit to joining a band.
Applications to join the Band Programme as well as our School’s Band brochure can be collected from the School Office. Participation in the Band programme is by invitation, after an application has been made. Spaces in the Band Programme are limited for those who decide to hire an instrument from the School as it depends on instrument availability. Group Tuition is offered for our Band members.
Mr Stoicescu is our Band Conductor and loves seeing the development of progress of our students and they move through our band programme.
