The goal of the Music Program at St. Joseph Catholic School is to strive for excellence in musicianship while developing a lifelong appreciation of music. Every student has the opportunity to study instrumental music in a supportive, caring, and encouraging environment.
The St. Joseph Catholic School Band Program consists of three bands:
- Band I (beginning 6th and 7th grade students with no experience)
- Band II (7th and 8th grade students who have had at least a year’s experience in Band)
- Praise Band (strings, woodwinds, vocals, and percussionists who will play at our weekly school Mass).
Band classes are offered during the school day through our middle school Pathway Enrichment time. Performance dates for the Band Program are:
