Taipei Zhong-Zheng Junior High School Wind Band

About 60 members of the concert band have been chosen from the School’s 900 students in the seventh grade. There are two bands in the school. Most of students have never touched the wind instruments before they get in the band, So new band players will accepted band fundamental training include sectional instrument class and band rehearsal in the first year. After that, many concerts and performance activities are waiting for them. Saturday morning is band rehearsal time included two hours section class and two hours whole band rehearsal. Most of players use their own instruments except the large instrument and percussion instrument players using school instruments. All of the band activities are supported by school, instructors and parents of the members paid lots of efforts to support the band activities.

Supported from School Principal Yu, Guo-Jen and parents of the members, carefully tuned instruction from teachers, willingness of the members to learn without spare efforts, organization and coordination by the school, and actively participation into various contests, all the above are quite essential for the band’s success. Our belief is that by providing junior-high school students with sound music skills help them to love and enjoy playing organs for their life.
