Our Instuments

Tuition is given in a wide range of instruments such as flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, baritone, bass guitar, tuned percussion and drums. We encourage all students to take part and share their musical journey together.

All students enrolled in the Instrumental Music Program are required to participate in the Northern Bay College Concert Band.
