RCS offers instruction for Flute, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone and Percussion. Students in grade six or older who have completed at least one year on another instrument will also be offered Oboe, French Horn, Baritone and Tuba. Musicians wanting to begin percussion instruction must have two years of piano lessons completed, or take private lessons and school lessons with our percussion director.
Band is a full-year commitment, and students receive individual and/or small-group instruction, once a week, during the school day. Our young musicians will participate in concerts, join our high school pep band at events, and share their talent at Liturgy. As students at Lourdes High School, musicians have opportunities with numerous vocal and instrumental ensembles, concert band, competitive marching band, winter drumline, and music trips around the nation.
