Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the frequently asked questions about our Band Program. If you have further questions, please contact our Student Services Representatives at [email protected]

  • How do I choose between Elementary Band and Intermediate Band?
    Students with 0-1 year of playing experience should join Elementary Band. Students with 2-3 years playing experience should join Intermediate Band. Most students who took band with us this year should proceed to Intermediate Band. 
  • How do I choose an instrument?

    There are a few ways to figure out the right instrument (or instruments!) for you.

    • Talk to your school music teacher. They will probably have some good advice for you.
    • Attend Wide Open House. You'll have the chance to learn more about the instruments and ask questions of our Faculty.
    • Sign up for our Summer Band Camp. This one-week camp is a great introduction to both music and learning in an ensemble environment. 
    • Register for a trial lesson. Visit us in person at 273 Bloor Street West and talk to one of our Student Service Representatives. You can also contact us at [email protected] or at 416-408-2825.
