Lord Lansdowne has a long tradition of excellence in music programming. We know that the discipline that children learn through ongoing practice and group performance provide skills that transfer to a range of life and work situations.
We have a fulltime music teacher, who instructs a vocal music program to all grades, as well as providing additional instrumental instruction on guitar and recorder, for selected grades. We offer Primary, Junior and Senior Choirs, as well as our famous Blues Crew and vocal ensembles. We offer instruction in band, starting at Grade 5 in alternate years, with both Junior and Senior weekly Band classes.We have one of the best student string programs in the city, with over 45 students studying violin, viola, cello and bass under the expert instruction of our Itinerant Music Instructors. Our Summer Strings program in the summer attracts a wide range of young musicians, who come to hone their technique and broaden their repertoire in performance. As well, we have an itinerant Orff instructor who works with selected classes each year, focussing on rhythmic percussion and pentatonic music.
