Our Bands

Beginning Band – Our Beginning Band is designed especially for 4th graders and first-year players in 5th grade at our local schools. Students get one group lesson and one 45 minute band rehearsal during the school day.

Cadet Band – Our Cadet Band is designed especially for 5th, 6th and 7th graders at our local schools. Students get one 45 minute rehearsal each week. This takes place during the school day, and students do not miss any academic classes! Private lessons are available for cadet students for an additional fee.

Concert Band – This band is designed for our middle school musicians, after completion of the Beginning Band. They meet twice each week after school at St. Joseph High School for a group rehearsal. This band may be supplemented with a discounted weekly private lesson to further advance the student’s musicianship. Public, private and home school students are all eligible for enrollment in this ensemble.

CYO Emerald Knights Band – The summer marching band is open to public, private and home-school students in Southeast Wisconsin! This band travels and performs with the Mid America Competing Band Directors Association and competes annually at the Cherryland Band Classic in Traverse City, MI.
