Holy Family students are offered the opportunity to participate in small-group instrumental band lessons with opportunities to take part in group performances.

The students are placed, by instrument and ability, into groups of 2-8 pupils. Weekly lessons are conducted during the day on a rotating basis so that a student will not miss the same class more than once during a period of several months. (Example: if a student has a 9:00am lesson, it will be at 9:30 the following week, etc.)

Students who wish to participate must maintain a passing grade in all other school subjects in order to continue their participation. The program is also a graded program, so parents will be kept abreast of their child’s progress. Music report cards are given out at the same time that school report cards are issued.
