Band and Strings Registration

Band & Strings Registration

The North Vancouver School District, in cooperation with the District 44 Band and Strings Parents Association, offers elementary school children the opportunity to learn to play a band or strings instrument as one of the varied educational experiences offered in our schools.  This program is one of British Columbia's finest and has been made possible over the years by the support of a large number of dedicated parents, staff and administrators.

The band program is available in all schools for students in grades 5, 6, and 7 (*Grade level in the 2018-2019 school year). 

The strings program for bowed string instruments is available at Canyon Heights, Cleveland, Highlands, Montroyal, Braemar, Dorothy Lynas, Larson, Seymour Heights and Ross Road for students in grades 4, 5, 6 and 7 (*Grade level in the 2018-2019 school year). 

Beginning students will be provided with registration information at their schools explaining the purpose and features of the program.  Parents of beginners are encouraged to take a few minutes to read this information when it arrives and consider this excellent opportunity.

The Band and Strings program is not part of the normal school curriculum, and the costs to provide the program are totally funded by the registration fees. 

Students are required to provide their own instrument, or alternatively, to rent one. Bursaries are no longer available for this program.

If you have questions or would like more information, please call and leave a message for the band and/or strings teacher at your school.
