WCCA Instrumental


Students have an opportunity to develop technical and expressive musical skills that prepare them to perform in a variety of genres and pursue music at the post-secondary level. Each student has weekly one-to-one and small group lessons with an expert in their instrument, and performs as part of the WCCA Concert Band. Senior students perform in chamber ensembles, the WCCA Wind Ensemble and as soloists.  


Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass players are mentored by expert tutors in a small group setting. Students work on solo repertoire and technique for evaluation as well as preparing ensemble pieces for community performances. Music theory is also an integral part of learning. 


Guitarists study both popular and classical styles using acoustic instruments. Students are expected to learn music theory and history as it pertains to the guitar.


Students are provided with an individualized program suited to fit their needs and interests, and may choose to focus on playing more traditional piano music and/or jazz and pop music. Students have the opportunity to examine concepts related to theory, music appreciation, composition, and critical thinking.
