Phyl’s Academy Concert Band

The Phyl’s Academy Concert Band offers students from Grades 4 to 12 the opportunity to learn music in a safe and fun environment as part of our school’s extra-curricular program. The Band is an important part of our school’s student life, performing at all major functions such as the school’s opening and closing ceremonies, graduations and other major events. The Band performs several times a year and even showcases the musical talents of students once a year at its annual Art and Music Recital and Exhibition.
Students of all musical skill levels are welcome to join our Band. The Band itself is comprised of standard concert band instruments such as the flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone and the saxophone just to name a few. Owing to our school’s overall Caribbean heritage, the steel drum as well as the African drums are taught as well. The Band has a full rhythm section which includes electronic musical instruments such as the keyboard, the bass and electric rhythm guitar. In addition to these instruments, the Concert Band also offers students the opportunity to learn traditional marching percussion instruments as part of our Percussion Ensemble.
As the Band continues to grow it has been fortunate to see its members advance to continue to study and play music at college level and boasts of a rich cadre of former students who are currently actively involved in some of the top college bands in the state.
