We are pleased to announce that a Beginner Band will run once again for the 2017-2018 season. Here you can learn to play an instrument and participate in a band experience. The Beginner Band rehearses 2 hours per week, Mondays from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, in the music room at Richard McBride Elementary School. At this time, the band is comprised mostly of a group of people who have been playing together for some time and are seeking to improve their musicianship.
The Beginner Band is conducted by Ms. Katherine Brown
Katherine earned her Bachelor of Music from the University of Victoria
in 2013 as a French Horn major. She has since started her career as a
music educator in the Burnaby School District. She is currently the
music teacher at Cariboo Hill Secondary School, where she teaches
concert band, jazz band, and choir. Katherine has been a member of New
West District Bands for the past three seasons, and she’s now excited
to be part of the society in a new role. She’s looking forward to
sharing her love of concert band music with a new ensemble.
