For All Grade 6 Students and New Students to CHMS
The music room will be open every lunch and after school the first week of school for you to try out almost any instrument you want! This will give you a very good idea of what instrument to choose when joining band or strings. Parents are more than welcome to come in after school and speak with us too!
Students may try the: Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, Baritone, Tuba, Violin, Viola, Cello, and the Double Bass
Larsen Music Rental Night
For your convenience, The Larsen Music store (on Cook Street) will be coming into the school on Monday, September 29th from 5 - 7:30 p.m. for students to rent their instruments. A lot of families find it easer to rent it from Larsen music when they are at Cedar Hill School rather than driving to their store on Cook Street. Mrs. Romphf will also be there to help you and to answer your questions.

Grade 8 Concert Band Students
Last year there was a problem getting the books in, students waiting over a month to get them, they were selling out throughout Victoria. So, we have pre-ordered all the books for you! You may purchase your Gr. 8 band method book from the music program for $8/book. Please see Mrs. Romphf in the music room for more details.
