Alex Dugdale, Band Director
The Band program at Holy Rosary School is an integrated-level ensemble of 4th through 8th grade students. The music covers a wide variety of styles, and even includes original compositions from time to time. Students can choose Flute, Clarinet, Alto Sax, Trumpet, Trombone, or Percussion. The Band performs in the Christmas and Spring Concerts.
Playing a musical instrument is a wonderful and rewarding experience.Â There are many exciting performance opportunities throughout high school, college, and beyond. In addition, the skills required to play and practice music are very helpful in other areas of life.
