Cosmopolitan Beginner Program

Our beginner program is designed designed for those of you who didn't have the opportunity to learn an instrument in school yet you always wanted to.

It is also designed for those of you who were band geeks in high school and for one reason or another haven't had an opportunity to play since then and are now a little rusty.

There are two levels of Beginner Band that run alternate years:

The Beginner Band Year One program is next scheduled to run in the 2016-2017 season, starting in October. 

The season begins in early October for Year One beginners and starts with small group lessons of like instruments with a professional instructor.  After the lessons, the musicians come together to become a Band and work with the Cosmo Beginner Band conductor.  We strongly encourage everyone to continue with lessons either in private or small group lessons.  

New in 2015-2016, we have Beginner Band Year Two for novice players who have some experience on their instruments.  

Beginner Band Year Two starts right after Labour Day

Rehearsals/lessons for both Beginner Band Year One and Year Two are on Wednesdays from 7:30-10:00pm.

The beginner programs run pending sufficient registration.  If you're interested, please contact us to add your name to the list for the next possible intake.
