Musical Instrument Tuition & Halsey Drive School Band

KBB Music - Play with the best. KBB School Concert Band Programme

At Halsey Drive Primary, in partnership with KBB Music School Concert Band Programme, children have the opportunity to learn Saxophone, Clarinet, Flute, Trumpet, Trombone and Percussion (Snare Drum and Glockenspiel) and perform in a band.
Children have group lessons for half an hour and rehearse weekly in the School Band.

Apart from the pleasure of making music and performing with others, research shows learning to play an instrument brings many benefits to your child’s intellectual and emotional development. Learning to play an instrument directly contributes to skills in other academic areas.

The KBB Music School Concert Band Programme is open to students from year 4 and above. No prior musical experience or knowledge is required. Due to size constraints saxophone and trombone are generally only available to students in years 5 and above.

Band members get better grades in other subjects.

The average scores achieved by music students on the 1999 SAT, increased for every year of musical study.
Reference: Steven M. Demorest and Steven J. Morrison in “Does Music Make You Smarter?” Music Educators Journal, September. 2000.

Music Lessons Help student more than computer training.

Research shows music student are better equipped to comprehend mathematical and scientific concepts.
Reference: Neurological Research. February 28, 1997.

Musicians Succeed in other professions.

The very best engineers and technical designers in the Silicon Valley industry are, nearly without exception, practicing musicians.
