Extracurricular Activities

BAND

The Infant Jesus of Prague School Band offers the opportunity to gain musical knowledge to any students in grades four through eight.

Learning to play a musical instrument is a true challenge requiring a good amount of time and effort. The musical knowledge and skill gained in the IJP School Band can be carried forward into high school, college, and even into a professional career. The IJP School Band provides our students with the opportunity to play their instrument in an environment of teamwork discipline, cooperation, and friendly competition. Through several public performances each year, the band serves to instill confidence and pride in a job well done.

HOW TO JOIN:

Please contact our band director, Mr. William Gula, at (708) 977-0227 or email mr.gula@aol.com, for information regarding the cost for participation and registration. Instruments offered include: Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, and Snare Drum. If you already own an instrument, please send it to the first lesson so we can inspect it for proper working conditions.

If you need to obtain an instrument, rental is your best option. Rentals start at $23 per month and can be ordered by calling PM Music Center at (630) 978-4756. Or you can order on their website: www.pmmusiccenter.com. PM Music will deliver the instrument and lesson book to IJP, so you will never have to go to their store. If you already have an instrument, a lesson book will be needed (Yamaha Band Student – Book 1). The cost for the book is approximately $8, and can be purchased through PM Music Center or other music stores in the area.
