Thank you for checking out our BCHS Band Page!  During the year, I will be posting newsletters, concert and trip information etc... so that you are able to stay informed about activities and expectations. I will send home paper copies of these, but just in case they don't make it home.....

Reminder: BCHS musicians will wear band uniforms for all public performances.  Grade 7 and 8  band members will be given a band sweater just prior to the performance. To go with this, they are asked to have a white shirt (with collar to support a tie), black dress pants, black socks and dark shoes.



The following list is intended to be a guide as to what supplies will be necessary this year in band.



Higher quality reeds for senior players will range from $3.00 to $4.00 per reed.

Instrumental Music – Course Outline


Teacher:          Mrs. Kerri-lee Kostiw ( or home phone 780-349-3568

Goal:   To provide students with an opportunity to learn a woodwind, brass or percussion instrument within an ensemble setting.

Course Objectives:     Through this course students will realize the following musical skills.

Evaluation: Students will be evaluated on the following areas.

Practice: Regular practice is essential to improvement as a musician. It is helpful to the student if he or she has a place to practice at home with a proper chair and music stand (or a way to hold the music that is similar to a music stand).

Materials:  Method books, scale sheets and repertoire will be provided in the student’s band folder. When in the music room, the folder is to be stored in the folder slot assigned to the student. Instrument cases are to be stored in the storage room. Students are asked to keep a pencil in their music folder for use in class.

If you ever have any questions or concerns about your child’s progress, or any other aspect of the music program, please contact me at any time. I look forward to an inspiring year of music!
