Welcome to the Music Department
The New Hope-Solebury Elementary Band is comprised of 140 students in grades 3 through 5. The students receive one 30 minute lesson per week in a small group setting. They also rehearse once per week at 8AM as an entire group. The group has grown tremendously over the past few years. In fact, 87% percent of the students at the UES are involved in a music performing group of some kind.
There are 3 different bands at the UES:
The beginning band is made up of all students who are starting a new instrument regardless of grade. Beginning Band rehearses every Thursday morning at 8AM in the LGI
The elementary band is open to all students who have at least one year of experience on their current instrument. Elementary Band rehearses every Tuesday Morning at 8AM in the LGI
