There are four bands at Normanhurst Public School they are:

  • training band for students in Year 3 or those just learning to play an instrument
  • Intermediate band for students in Year 4
  • concert band for students in Years 5 and 6
  • ensemble band an extension band offered to students seeking to challenge themselves further. Students are required to pass an audition to join this band.

Students usually start in the training band in Year 3 which means registering at the end of Year 2.  We usually except new enrolments through out the year, placing them in a band suited to their experience and level.

What is involved?

Rehearsals

Twice a week before school at 7:30am and once a week at lunch time.

Workshops

Competitions and concerts 

Students perform in several competitions or band festivals throughout the year. These are usually held on evening or weekend. As well, the bands may be invited to perform at functions and events in the local community. The bands also perform at school events and school concerts.

You must attend private lessons while in the band.

Joining the band means a commitment to all the above, over and above other commitments.
