St. Joan of Arc offers band in grades 4 - 8. Your child will feel accomplishment as he/she learns to read and play music! Semi - private lessons are offered weekly during the school day and are designed for the beginner, intermediate and advanced musician.  Weekly band practice teaches students how to create beautiful music together. Student talent is showcased during two evening performances held throughout the school year.

 Accomplished student musicians in Holy Cross Academy Catholic Schools have been invited to play in the Central Catholic marching bands, ensembles and high school drama performances. Others have been selected to play in the Canton Youth Symphony Orchestra. And, there are opportunities at schools to play in school and parish music ministries.
