Denver Christian School offers your child a robust band program.
All students in grades fifth through eighth have the opportunity to participate in our band program during their regular school day. They have daily practice in our custom-designed band room and perform in community band concerts three times a year. The fifth grade program includes instrument exploration, lessons on reading music, and rehearsing and performing simple songs. The sixth grade program works on more advanced instrument instruction and provides opportunities to learn and perform musical scores. The seventh and eighth graders have a combined band program where they can focus on gaining skills on a specific instrument and learning and performing longer, more complex musical scores.
At the high school level, students in the band program start with symphonic band which not only performs extensive musical pieces, but also explores musical composition. Symphonic band students also have the opportunity to engage at a deeper level with a smaller, more select jazz band. This smaller ensemble performs regularly throughout the year in community band concerts as well as for other church and community venues. All symphonic band students have the option to participate in a performance-oriented trip every other year and are also encouraged to try out for All State Band, All State Orchestra, All State Jazz Band, and other college honor bands.
Almost one-fifth of our student body is equipped through our band program.
