Band Parents Association

The Wolfville Band Parents Association (formally called the Wolfville Concert Band Association Committee) works to further the musical education of students at Wolfville School by supporting a Band Program for Middle Level students. The Wolfville Band Parents Association consists of all parents and/or guardians of students enrolled in the Band Program in Grades 6, 7 and 8.  

 

The ability to offer enriched music programming to our students through a Band Program is dependent upon support, in particular financial support, made available through the work of the Band Parents Association. Their philosophy is to ensure that all students have access to the Band Program irregardless of their financial situation.

 

Core government funding provided to the school for Music, covers the cost of a Music Teacher’s salary and space for classes. All other costs required to deliver enriched Music through a Band Program must be covered by funds raised by the Band Parents Association.

 

To ensure a successful and inspiring program, the Band Parents Association raises money through program operational fees, fundraisers, concert revenues and private donations.  

 

The following is a partial list of expenses that are necessary for the operation of a Band Program.

  • Instruments: Purchase, Maintenance, Repair
  • Instrument Accessories and Supplies: Reeds, valve oil, slide grease, neck straps, oil, etc.
  • Sheet Music, Music Folders and Music Stands
  • Fees for Festivals, Clinics or Workshops
  • Band Vests for performances

 

Program operational fees are necessary to support delivery of the Band Program and the rates are established each year at a level to cover anticipated program costs for that year.  In keeping with the Band Parents Association’s philosophy of making the Band Program accessible for all students, bursaries are available for students for whom the fees might be a barrier to participating. Bursary requests should be submitted in confidence to Mr. Nelson by October 1st of each school year.  Requests may be dropped off at the main office.  Please contact Mr. Nelson for more information.

 

The Band Parents Association executive members encourage all parents to attend regular meetings and become an active part of the team to make our Wolfville School Band Program an inspiring musical education experience for our students.
