The Gladwyne Montessori School Band provides a year long musical adventure where participants are introduced to playing as an ensemble. Students are presented the opportunity to collaborate and are taught to value the importance of individual contribution to a group effort. The song selections allow for the variety of instruments, abilities, and learning curve of each participant. The majority of the material comes from the rock/pop/folk repertoire but also include simple classical or Broadway songs.
The band performs throughout the year at events such as our school wide Holiday Sing Along, Spring Concert, Talent Show, and Graduation.
In addition to our school band, we offer our students private instrumental lessons starting in Kindergarten. These lessons are held after school for 30 minute sessions once a week. Private lessons allow our students to excel at their own pace and receive instruction unique to them.
