Welcome to Instrumental Music!

     Students in grades four to eight are provided the opportunity to participate in an instrumental music program here at St. Francis Xavier school.  


     Students attend weekly half hour lessons. They are pulled from class on a rotating schedule so as not to miss the same subject. Lessons are either Monday or Thursday mornings.


     They must also attend a large group band rehearsal one  night a week depending on their ability level. Students must participate in both the lessons and the band rehearsals to participate in the program.

  • Teaches students basic skills and techniques to play an ensemble.
  • Rehearses from 7:00 to 8:00 Monday evenings at Delone Catholic HS
      starting in January.
  • One mandatory performance in the spring.



  • Ensemble for more advanced musicians in grades five to eight.

  • Rehearses from 6:30 to 8:30 Wednesday evenings at Delone Catholic HS starting in September.
