Most TSA students will be involved in concerts and performances at this busy time of year. I have been lucky enough to be part of a number of demonstration performances by TSA bands when recruiting new band members for 2017.
These bands have blown me away with their performances and progress over the past 12 months!
For new families considering joining a TSA school band program in 2017, hopefully your child will be able to try a couple of instruments at their school with the band teachers. Enrolment packs will then be sent home with your child with comprehensive information about the band program at your school. Most schools have the option to enrol online as well to make the process as simple as possible.
I encourage everyone to have a look at this video that outlines the importance of music in a child’s development and hope that it helps explain some of the myths that surround the actual scientifically proven benefits your child is experiencing by playing an instrument and being involved in playing an instrument at their school.
I look forward seeing more wonderful performances as we draw towards the end of the year.
