The Hillgrove music program is a dynamic place where students learn and develop skills as musicians and performers. Students choose from a wide variety of brass, woodwind and percussion instruments and begin the exciting journey to becoming instrumentalists. Many opportunities are planned throughout the year for students to participate. Our year calendar looks like this:

November Grade 8 & 9 Remembrance Day Assembly
Nov/Dec Grade 7 Jump Start program
December All grades Annual Christmas concert
January All grades Two-day band camp - Lake Nakamun
February Grade 8 & 9 Clinics and performances at the University of Alberta
March All grades Elementary school performances
April All grades Alberta Band Association Festival - Red Deer
May All grades Spring tour - 4 or 5 days

Aside from the technical skills learned, students experience a team-like atmosphere where everyone is a highly-valued member and an integral part of the success of the group. Most students take all three grade levels in their junior high school years, making close friendships and memories they will never forget.
