Spruce Grove Middle School Band Program

The Spruce Grove Middle Schools Band program invites all middle years (grade 5-9) students in Spruce Grove and area the opportunity to learn how to play a wind instrument in a group setting.

The Beginning Band is the starting point of band for most students. There will be 13 one hour classes meeting at Broxton Park on Wednesdays from 3:30-4:30. The fundamentals mastered in these sessions will prepare students to be successful at the next level.  There will be an information night on Tuesday January 8; 7:00 pm in the Broxton Park music room. Our first practice of the Jan-April session will be Wednesday Jan 16.

The Concert Band is for students who have already played their band instrument for a year and wish to do more playing or prepare themselves for the high school program.  Thursday rehearsals will be at Broxton Park with a balanced focus on music preparation and team building. This ensemble will be a performance group playing in community concerts and attending festivals. If you play a band instrument and are interested in playing in the concert band, contact Mr. Loge for more information. 780.962.0212 or mloge@psd70.ab.ca / SGMS Band Handbook 12-13
