Adults want to play too

Concert band courses for grownups being expanded by Delta Continuing Education.

Are there adults who wold be interested in learning concert band instruments?

Darn tootin’.

With that in mind, Delta School District Continuing Education is expanding its Adult Beginner Concert Band to two groups.

Both will run on Wednesday nights from Sept. 10 to June 24, 2015.

The adult beginner program will be from 6:30-7:55 p.m. The intermediate group, called Brass, Wind and Wire (the original beginners from 2011 and subsequent students who have a year or more of experience) will play from 8-10 p.m.

The location is up in the air: If the teachers’ strike continues, the first rehearsal will be at South Delta Recreation Centre, 1720 56 St. in Tsawwassen. If the schools are open, rehearsals will be at Delta Secondary School, 4615 51 St. in Ladner.

In the beginner group, students will learn to read notes, rhythms and play a concert band instrument of their choice; their first performance is in June.

The intermediate group will work on more advanced skills and will learn 14-18 pieces of music to perform five or six concerts for the public throughout the year.

New members are always welcome and are encouraged to drop in to get a sense of whether the band is a good match.

Registration is available through Delta Continuing Education by phoning 604-940-5550 or online at http://bit.ly/VL1uA8 and looking under Personal Development courses.
