Does your child play the violin? Guitar? Drums? Trumpet? Any instrument?
Is he or she looking for friends to play with? Here they are at WMA!
The String Ensemble is a group that meets after school once a week for violin and cello students from grades 2 through 6. Students have to have at least one of private lessons to join, but they do not have to take lessons a WMA.
This ensemble performs for the Christmas and Spring Concerts. They also visit the Sisters of Mercy at McAuley Convent and share their music with them. It is a perfect way to increase their musicianship, eartraining and have a lot of fun making music with others!
Rock Band is open to students in grades 6 through 8 who have been studying guitar, bass, drums, brass, woodwind, keyboard or voice for at least a year. These students meet once a week after school and work on classic and modern rock. They perform at the Spring Concert and for a special end-of-the-year Community Gathering.
Students have a great deal of input on the songs they work on and strive for a truly professional sound!
