Band + Jazz
Elegance is defined as the quality of being graceful and stylish in appearance, manner and style. The Notre Dame Jazz and Concert Band program epitomizes this and allows students to express themselves creatively through music, rehearsals, practice, and general hardwork.
Over time, students will find joy in music-making by providing additional educational experience, or even a career following post-secondary. These programs are available to students attending Notre Dame of all grade levels and are open to teach students with differing musical expertise. It focuses on developing techniques on wind, brass, and percussion instruments, fostering a sense of individual and group responsibility. Furthermore, students will mature in musical literacy skills, advancing in the real world as knowledgeable, skillful musicians.
On another note, the Notre Dame Band program centers itself around the motto: “Rehearsal is a musical end in itself: the concert is a byproduct of rehearsal, not the reason for it.” Apart from music, the program enables students to create life-long friendships and tune skills that can be used in other departments throughout secondary years.
