Juying Symphonic Band_ where Every Note is a Joy!



Vision


One Band, One Sound.

Mission


To develop musical and character excellence, a love for music and a sense of camaraderie in members of the symphonic band.

Overview


Juying Symphonic Band is a family comprising youths who seek to pursue musical and character excellence. It is a place where all members’ strengths are embraced. Their skills are developed through training and performing together.  

Regardless of one’s musical background, our teachers and instructors are committed to nurture every student to fulfil one’s fullest potential. With a strong alumni support and a culture of mentorship and care, Juying Symphonic Band continues to sustain our musical achievements by clinching the Certificate of Accomplishment at the 2017 Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation for Concert Bands. 

We have continued to maintain strong partnerships with organisations to give the band many opportunities to share their love for performing with the public.

We, in Juying Symphonic Band, will continue to dedicate ourselves in the pursuit of our mission and we welcome youths with a passion for symphonic music to join us. Stay tuned as we write our next chapter in 2019.

"I joined band because I felt that I can have more discipline then I did before. I can strengthen bonds by approaching some of my seniors for help whenever I am struggling. Also in band, you get to try out new instruments and learn music-related things, which is a skill that most people do not have! One of the reasons why I joined band is because of its genres that I am exposed to, for example, pop songs and classical songs . Also, you do not need a musical background in order to join band. I used to play the piano three years ago but after that I stopped learning. That meant  I had forgotten everything that I learned during my piano music lessons. So joining band was like a brand new start on my musical journey. I hope that this testimonial will inspire you to join the Juying Symphonic Band!"

 “I think the Sec One students should join the Symphonic Band as it is a great opportunity to learn about music and we also get to play an instrument. Besides that, you will also be exposed to a huge repertoire, ranging from pop songs to classical pieces. Playing these different genres is a lot of fun! In addition, our instructor would always entertain us with jokes to make the practice more enjoyable so that it would not feel tedious. What I like about being in band is that we are always supporting each other. Every time when we have difficulty playing a certain part, our bandmates would always encourage and support us. For me, being the Assistant Band Major has really helped me to step up and I am more confident in myself.”

Drum Major 2018-2019
"Band changed my life! Band was not my first choice when I was in Secondary 1, but now that I am in Secondary 3 and am a Drum Major of Juying Symphonic Band, I never regretted joining band. Band exposed me to a lot of things, in music, leadership and self-awareness. Juying Symphonic Band introduced me to different types of music: pop, classical, march and many other genres. I gained discipline, responsibility, selflessness, and a quick reflex. I can never be more than thankful to my instructors, my teachers in charge, and my seniors and alumni who helped me through my 3 years in Band. I know my weaknesses and strengths even better now that I have become a leader myself, learning to lead the whole band. I quote, "courage is not having the strength to go on, but going on when you don't have the strength”. Being in a Band is not easy, but it's going to be worth it and you will love it. Our Band is a family, we are not just friends. I hope you will get inspired to join our family, and be part of us.

Drum Major 2017-2018
"Being in Symphonic Band for the past 4 years has taught me many things. It has taught me never to give up, to persevere towards my goals. Symphonic Band gives many opportunities to each deserving member, allowing each member to gain experience and knowledge along the way. Band is not just a CCA, it is a family where many find solace in because everyone looks out for everyone. Under the tutelage of the good teachers and instructors, it has honed me to become the person that I am today. I am thankful for Band as the teachers and instructors focus on cultivating good habits, attitude and personality. There are many things that I had learned in Symphonic Band which are used in my daily life and will be remembered even after I graduate."

"Over the past four years as a leader and a member of the band, I have learned many valuable lessons. I have learned to be adaptable as there are times when things did not go according to plan. As a leader I learned to be able to quickly think of solutions and to work with what I have so that it would not affect the members. Also, I have become a more confident individual. This is because as a leader I have to step out of my comfort zone and lead a big group of people. I am thankful to teachers-in-charge and instructors for their invaluable guidance as I am now able to speak up in front of a crowd and be more confident of myself."
