COVID-19 Update: In-school classes for 2020-21 begin September 8. Read our Return-to-School Plan.

The music program at Georges Vanier consists of an Orff/Kodaly approach to music education in the early years, incorporating movement, rhythm instruments, singing skills and rhythm reading and writing skills. Older students are introduced to instrument playing (recorders, ukulele, guitars and drums) and theory.  Singing and performance skills are also components of the music program. There are opportunities for students to join the Junior or Senior Choir. 

A comprehensive band program is also offered for grade 6 to 8 students. The students may choose from a woodwind, brass or percussion instrument. The students learn how to play their instrument, how to be part of an ensemble, music theory, and much more. The band program also allows performance opportunities within the year as well.
