Dear Parents/Carers

 

Preparations are well underway for Band Camp 2019, which will be held Saturday 14 March and Sunday 15 March at Wesley Centre, 19a Wesley St, Elanora Heights.

 

The Camp is a highlight of the year for our musicians and plays a significant role in developing their musical skills. The two days of music development is equal to almost a term of band rehearsals.

  

All band members are expected to commit to attend for the duration of the camp.  Partial attendance or even a few hours away from tutoring will have an impact on your child's learning and the entire team.  Year 5 and 6 children will be invited to stay overnight on Saturday night.

 

The students and band conductors spend an intensive two days, where they will prepare for the band festivals held in Terms 2 and 3.  Activities include participation in full band rehearsals, small group tutorials, a fun workshop where they will improve their listening and rhythm skills and outdoor activities supervised by teachers and parents.

 

The tuition schedule and other activities are designed to be stimulating and enjoyable for the children from which they benefit greatly.

 

Costs for band camp are included in the annual band fees.
