The McKechnie Band practices once per week from 7:45-8:45am on a weekday morning, right before school. 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, complete beginners to learning music or to learning a new instrument.
The senior band welcomes Grade 5 to 7 students who have had at least one-year experience with the McKechnie junior band.
There is an band orientation and instrument selection date every June, in advance of the September term start. Come try various instruments and see if making music is for you!
