Description of CCA
Our Brass Band was set up in 2006 with about 20 members. Since then, our band has tripled in size and has performed in various events. The disciplined routines that our band members go through allow them to learn the values of discipline, teamwork, responsibility and commitment. Ensemble playing is more than the sum of its individual parts. Playing in an ensemble allows our students to develop team skills. Whether members are involved in the melody or harmony part of a music piece, they learn to listen and communicate with each other to create music as a team. They also learn specialized musical skills such as sight reading skills, musical literacy and aesthetic appreciation. Opportunities are also provided to develop and grow student leaders to build their leadership skills, interpersonal skills and management skills.
Till date, the Brass Band has participated and performed in various events:
- Masterclasses with renowned Japanese / Taiwanese conductor
- Musical exchanges with other bands
- Singapore Youth Festival Central Judging / Arts Presentation
- School performances
- Overseas Band Exchange (Taiwan) 2012
- Music in the City - Bands by the Bay (Outdoor performance @ MarinaBay) 2010
