Music education helps develop well-rounded students who are creative thinkers, innovators and problem solvers. Louis St. Laurent is home to one of Edmonton’s most vibrant music programs. As the core to our programming, we embrace the benefits of Middle Years Program (MY)P. We encourage our music students to view the world through many lenses and explore creative ways of learning, collaborating and performing their musical ideas. Students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of ensembles and experiences that are sure to enrich their development.
Instrumental music is a full year course. This program is designed for students studying Oboe, Flute, Clarinet, Bassoon, Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba, Upright Bass and Percussion. The program focuses on skill development and understanding through the study of musical literature in a large ensemble setting.
Students perform concerts and compete at Festivals throughout the year, including at such venues as the LSL theatre, Myer Horowitz Theatre, the Winspear Centre for Music, Allard Hall, and more.
In Grade 10 we offer an intensive program in which students meet for Instrumental music every day, all year long. Also, students will complete their CALM and Religion 15 requirements, earning 11 credits.
In Grades 11 and 12 students may enroll in Instrumental Music 20 and 30 for 5 credits. This class is only offered as a full year course.
Prerequisite for Instrumental Music 10 is Music 9, or recommendation of the Fine Arts department.
