Band (Available to Grades 4-8)
Band class is offered twice weekly in the Fine Arts Suite. Each instrumental section meets once separately and the entire band meets once as a group. These classes prepare the students for two annual band concerts – one each Christmas and springtime. Instruments include clarinet, trumpet, saxophone, trombone, oboe, flute and percussion, and groups are divided by Beginning Band and Advanced Band. In addition, students excelling at their individual instrument are given the opportunity to audition for the Pittsburgh Diocese Honors Band. Students may also continue their band studies during private afterschool lessons and the SPS Summer Music Program.
