Dear Parents/Carers

 

Preparations are well underway for Band Camp 2022, which will be held Saturday 20 August and Sunday 21 August at Sydney Academy of Sport and Recreation, Wakehurst Parkway, Narrabeen

 

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 are invited to stay overnight on Saturday night.

 

The students and band conductors spend an intensive two days, where they will prepare for performances in Terms 3 and 4.  Activities include participation in full band rehearsals, small group tutorials 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.
