Private Lessons

Associated with the Music Department are a number of the top instrumental performers from the Lower Mainland. These are professionals who will come to the School and teach private lessons, thus making it easy for any student to take individual lessons without having to travel great distances. Boys may have lessons after School or during lunch hour (at the Senior School). Private lessons are a great adjunct to the regular Band classes. After parents make arrangements with the desired private teacher, lessons typically occur in one of the many practice rooms attached to the main band rooms.

Scholarships

At the Senior School, there are four major scholarships available to music students. Each has a cash award, which is to be used to reduce fees or for some approved music related purpose. In order to be considered, students must complete an application, supported by references, and perform an accompanied solo on their band instrument. The scholarships are: the Alan Brown Music Scholarship, the Lily Vera Stanley Scholarship in Music, several Rigg Music Scholarships, and the 1990 Music Parents' Award. In addition, there are also 22 music trophies presented annually to recognize excellence.
