Music Program

As part of the Brigade Youth Program, children will experience the accomplishments and joys of music and marching band. The rhythm, memorization, practice and performance promotes focus and discipline. Children and youth will be introduced to musical styles, explore musical instruments and learn marching band drills. Through music and marching band, the Brigade brings children together with others in achievement and teamwork. Your child will learn skills and appreciation that will stay with him or her throughout a lifetime.

“As a child in the Brigade, the marching band gave me a sense of community and a place of belonging. We had band practices and outings, parades and stadium performances. I was so proud of putting on my uniform and playing the drums and marching,” Reverend Moses ’Kunle Sowale said.

Youngsters become immersed and fascinated when they can turn noise into meaningful music, when they can create harmony out of chaos. The program offers children a chance to explore music on many levels, including its calming influences in a world of anxieties.

 

  • MUSIC PROGRAM FORM

    To be completed in addition to the Enrollment Form if your child is participating in the music program.

    If you would like to borrow an instrument from Grace Chapel you will need to complete the borrower’s form in addition to this form.

  • Commitment of time to practice. Learning to play an instrument requires not only lessons but a willingness to practice almost every day. If you want your child to take lessons, you will be committing yourself and your child to practicing at least 20 minutes each day.

    I agree to commit to practice time.
