Notes From The Music Room
It has been an exciting and busy start back in the music room at General Byng. Our students in Kindergarten to Grade 6 are currently learning many types of new songs and instrument techniques. Highlights include “We Will Not Forget” as performed by the Grade 3/4 choir for the Remembrance Day ceremony this year. Our composer of the month in September was Bach, October was Mozart and we will be beginning to look at the music of Beethoven next month in December.
We are currently working on our Winter Concert, which will be presented online on November 30th. More information on this will follow in the coming weeks.

The General Byng Band program consists of four ensembles: grade 7, 8 and 9 band as well as a jazz ensemble open to band students in grade 8 and 9. Occasionally, groups are combined to create larger ensembles for performances or festivals. All of the bands perform throughout the year at school concerts and festivals and have the opportunity to work with guest conductors and clinicians.
Our choir program welcomes General Byng Junior High students from all grades. We rehearse three times per week during lunch hour. The choir has a number of performances throughout the year.
