Classes are designed to be fun and encouraging and their is no prior experience necessary. The instruments taught are flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, alto sax, and percussion.

Group lessons are offered directly after the school day ends and take place at your school. Two semesters of band classes Are taught and classes meet once a week for a 45 minute lesson. Each semester culminates with a concert for parents.

*4th graders that register for bells will play bells, snare and percussion in intermediate band after completing their first year of band.

The cost of each semester is $210 and students will need to rent their instrument. We will provide parents with a list of local music stores in order to obtain their instrument. No prior musical experience is necessary. If you have questions, contact Keith Pennings by calling 408-624-6196 or by email at keithpen1961@gmail.com.

Performances

Band students perform two concerts each year. Second year intermediate students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of events including playing in the Los Gatos Christmas Parade, performing in our annual band competition, and playing the national anthem at a San Jose Giants basball game.

 


Practice is the
key to success.

four to five days a week
