TAUGHT BY KEVIN GARDINER & SHEILA KLOTZ (DRUMLINE)
The band program is available for all students at KCA. Starting in the 4th grade all students are taught an instrument of their choice. This program continues in 5th and 6th grade and through middle school with students taking band during one of the semesters as an elective.
Students may choose from Flute, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, Bells/Perc. Some instruments are available from the school for a yearly maintenance fee, however rental instruments are advised. You may also choose to use a family or friend “hand me down” instrument, or one you have found online. If that is the case, please consult with the teacher so he can assure you it is in proper working condition and an adequate model to ensure your child’s success.
