George L. Catrambone School

Instrumental Music Program

Grades 3 - 5

Hello there! Welcome to GLC's online band room!

All students in grades 3 through 5 are invited to join the GLC Band program! Students will have the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument and read music. All students will receive one pull-out lesson a week during the school day. Band instruments can either be rented from local music companies, purchased from a music store, or borrowed by the school. More information about joining the band program and obtaining an instrument will be sent home during the month of September.

Students are encouraged to practice daily at home for a minimum time of 15-20 minutes. Practicing their instruments daily will ensure that they understand the material that was taught during their lesson for the week. Practice helps the student play their instruments better! Please visit my teacher page frequently for all updates, upcoming events, and more. Make sure to follow all GLC Band social media accounts as well for updates, which are listed below.

The GLC Band has made great progress last year and the program continues to grow!! Year 4 was a different vibe for us all, but the strong friendships the students have built with one another in the band room and virtually helped us grow as individuals and we stuck it out together. I am very excited to get back into the band room and make music with the band students!! I also look forward to more performance opportunities and more for the GLC Band this year. We'll make this new reality the best one for GLC together!!
