Paul Effman Band Program
The Paul Effman Music Service has been serving Catholic schools since 1980. The Band Program lets students participate in a weekly group lesson. The instruments they can learn are flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone and drums. Students do not need to have any experience playing an instrument. They will learn how to put the instrument together, how to make a sound, how to read music and play some songs! The Band performs at Christmas and in the Spring.
