Want to learn a woodwind, brass or percussion instrument? Starting instrumental music next year at school? Get a head start. Get a head start on learning to play a band instrument with our great beginning band program! Thanks to the wonderful people at Long & McQuade, an instrument will be provided to you when you arrive at camp. Our amazing faculty will teach you everything from putting your instrument together, playing your first note straight through to your first performance! A great opportunity to learn and play an instrument at the same time as having fun & making new friends!

Beginning Band will be led by Jessica Puskar from the Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra and Pickering College. Jessica’s unique approach to teaching inspires young musicians to achieve results they never thought possible while having lots of fun!
