Trinity Lutheran School band begins in grade 5 where every student has the opportunity to participate for one semester. After that introduction band is an elective. The students play a Christmas Concert, a Spring Concert, and join other regional schools in a combined band of around 150 students each spring. Band musicians in grades 7 and 8 have the opportunity to play solos and chamber music at the Lutheran Elementary Schools Tournament at Concordia University Portland each February. And, most importantly, we serve our Savior by providing music for worship and chapel.


The Junior High Academy Band program is directed by Dr. Craig Naylor, an award-winning composer who has taught elementary through university level bands for over three decades.
