Learn to play a band instrument
Starting in September 2015, the Raymond Lacroix (A. Mus, B. Mus, M. Mus) will begin a new project of training people of all ages to learn to play a band instrument. The hope is that participants will eventually join the Seaway Winds Concert Band or another major group.
The "Cornwall New Horizons Band" will hold two 60 minute rehearsals a week. At CCVS, the Monday class (from 4 to 5 p.m.) will be for beginners and the Thursday Class will be for the Band (again 4 to 5 p.m.)
The musical director and teacher will be Raymond Lacroix who has many years of experience teaching instrumental music in our schools.
Since many schools have reduced or even cancelled their band programs, we need to form our own musicians.
We will be looking for financial support of any amounts from businesses and individuals.
If YOU are interested in being a member of the Cornwall New Horizons Band classes and learn to play a band instrument, please call Raymond at (613) 938-6364. This will not be a commitment. After 2 classes, if you wish to continue classes, we will be asking $50 from each player to support expenses needed for books and percussion equipment.
We thank "New Horizons International" for their great financial backing to get us started.
