Band 6-8

​The Louis Riel School Division believes that music is an integral part of a student’s education. Learning to play a musical instrument provides a lifelong source of enjoyment, a team experience, a source of self-discipline and an outlet for personal expression.

Music is compulsory for every student at ILCS and is taught by a qualified instructor. Band students choose from ten different instruments on which they can develop their musical skills. Students will learn skills sequentially over three years and then have the option of continuing in High School. Grade 6 students receive instruction for 30 minutes, 3 times per cycle, while Grade 7 & 8 students receive 40 minutes, 4 times per cycle. Performance opportunities for students include concerts, assemblies and other school events. Jazz Band is offered as an extracurricular activity for students in Grade 7 & 8.

The focus of the Band program is on having fun while learning and developing a life-long love for making music.
