2020-2021 Music Selection for New GC Students

2020-2021 Music Selection for New GC Students

All students enrolled at GCPS are required to participate in our Instrumental Music Program. Each student will receive 2 years of instruction in musical notation, theory and practice.



Some important points about out Instrumental Music Program:


  • Students DO NOT need to know how to play an instrument prior to the start of Grade 7. 


  • Instruments can be purchased or rented from local music stores on a monthly or yearly basis. This allows students more time to work with their instrument at home. If your child plans on renting an instrument, they may choose from the following: Flute, Clarinet, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Trumpet, Trombone and Baritone. If you are renting/purchasing you can do that as soon as you’ve decided on an instrument. 


  • Our school also has a variety of instruments available on site which can be shared between students. There is no cost for using these instruments, other than the deposit on the personal mouthpiece which will be returned at the end of the year when the mouthpiece is turned into the music teacher.  If choosing an instrument supplied by the school, they may choose from the following: Flute, Clarinet, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Trumpet, Trombone, Baritone and Bass Clarinet.  Students will select their top 3 choices and the final selection will be made by the music teacher based on availability.


  • For those students wishing to play Bass Guitar, please contact the school music teacher directly. Bass Guitar requires a personal rental.


  • Percussion is NOT available until Term 2. At that time, some students will be invited to play percussion instruments. Remember: Percussion isn't just drums. It's Bells, Xylophone, Timpani, Cymbals and so much more.
