“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)
The Instrumental Music Program strives to provide a Biblically based opportunity for student growth, development, and understanding of music through individual devotion and group participation. As music educators it is our goal to instill the Biblical principles of truth, wisdom, integrity, commitment, honor, and excellence in all of our students. The natural outcome of these instilled principles is Christ-centered service through performance.
The band classes encompass all aspects of the Cole Valley Christian Schools instrumental program. Each student will participate in regular full-band rehearsals as well as individual solo or small group settings. For the elementary members there are three formal performances; Christmas production, Grandparents Day, and the band Spring Concert. The secondary band performs in four formal seasonal performances along with performances at selected sporting events, marching band competitions, parades, and performances as deemed appropriate as per the Director and/or Cole Valley Christian Schools. Instruction will be available to students on all band instruments (flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, tuba, etc.) regardless of experience. Students who play the piano, bass guitar, violin (string instruments) or guitar may be considered by audition/interview.
