Advisor: Mrs. Southard

The Canal View Band program starts for students in 4th Grade and continues through the end of 5th Grade. Students are given an opportunity to try out instruments of their interest at the end of 3rd Grade, typically in the middle of June. 


Students in their first year of playing will participate in Beginner Band where they learn about how to maintain their instruments, play the instruments, and participate in a large-group setting. Beginner Band rehearsals are on Friday mornings before school from 8:00 - 8:45, and these rehearsals start at the end of October.


Students in their second year will participate in Advanced Band where they continue to learn on their instrument, building on the skills from the first year, and play more challenging music.  Students in Advanced Band have additional performance opportunities that will be discussed throughout the year.  Advanced Band meets on Monday and Wednesday mornings from 8:00 - 8:45, and these rehearsals start in September. 

Canal View also has a Jazz Band that works under the direction of Mrs. Southard.  Jazz Band meets on Tuesday after school from 3:30 - 4:30pm.
