Please check out the program here: McKechnie School Band program
The McKechnie Band practices once per week from 8:00-8:45am on a weekday morning, right before school. As well, students will have a semi-private online lesson once per week. We are happy to have Mr. Tom Kuo, Director of the Vancouver Pops Symphony Orchestra, lead our students in learning popular tunes throughout the school year.
Aside from the McKechnie Christmas Concert and Year-end Outdoor performance, there are off-site performance opportunities as well. Repertoire taught include popular movie tunes from Disney, Hollywood and Broadway musical favourites.
The Junior band welcomes students in Grade 4 and above, from complete beginners to those learning a new instrument.
The Intermediate band welcomes Grade 5 to 7 students who have had at least one-year experience with the McKechnie Junior band or another band/orchestra program.
