The instrumental music department of Lausanne Collegiate School includes student musicians in grades 5 - 12. Class instruction begins in grade five with instrument selection, rhythmic and music notation introduction, and beginning tone production and technique. Students in grade five work both individually and in their ensemble to prepare and produce three concerts the first year. The culmination of year one of instruction is a solo festival where students showcase their progress for adjudication. The second through fourth years of instruction continue to build on skills introduced year one. Preparation and audition skills are taught at this stage to encourage audition for honor band selection. From grades 9-12, instrumentalists mature through greater emphasis on the individual musician. The culminating senior instrumentalist will have the skills necessary to continue their musical journey through either university or conservatory study after having acquired a lifelong love of music appreciation and understanding.
The Lausanne instrumental music department provides both individual and group performance feedback to its students through in class and outside adjudication assessment. Students prepare individually and in large and small ensemble presenting the culmination of their labors to school, family, local , regional and national communities. The bands of Lausanne perform at home football games as the Lausanne LYNX Pride Band, for our school and parent community as the Lausanne Symphonic Band, for local and regional judges as soloists and chamber music ensembles.
