We Are Prepared for Virtual Band this Fall!
You can Register Now
Given current social distancing restrictions and related health risks due to COVID-19, it is in the best interest of our members to offer all of our programs in a virtual setting this fall.
What are we up to this fall?
Our September classes get you ready with free classes how to use the technology that enables online music learning.
Our Band, Jazz, Musicianship and Workshop classes run in October and November. Take classes for one month or both – each month features fresh material (song-writing is the exception – this is a 2-month project). Sign up for a little or a lot. Five levels of Band class to meet your needs.
- Virtual band classes,
- Instrument workshops,
- Classes in songwriting, repertoire, theory, transposition, music appreciation and playing in small ensembles,
- A lecture series called Music for Life, where accomplished music professionals share some of their experiences with us.
It’s never too late to join us, and it has never been easier to take part in learning music

The Beat Goes On Concert ~ June 1, 2019
New Horizons Band of Toronto is a music education and performance program for mature adults who wish to play a concert band instrument in a friendly group setting. Concert band instruments are: flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, French horn, euphonium, trombone, tuba, bells, xylophone, drums & many other percussion instruments. We offer band classes ranging from absolute beginner to advanced levels, conducted by experienced, professional music directors. The two-hour classes are held once per week in the daytime or evening. We also offer enrichment classes in jazz performance and music theory. All classes are held at 662 Victoria Park Ave (North-West corner of Victoria Park and Danforth Ave) immediately south of the Victoria Park subway and bus TTC station. For more information about our music program see About Us.
NHBT members perform regularly in the community in large and small ensembles. To ask a question or to have us perform at your event, submit a Contact Us form.
Being a “Super-ager”…
A New York Times article (December 2016) suggested that (re)learning to play a musical instrument will go a long way to keeping your brain as sharp as when you were 25! So, take up a challenging activity…master a musical instrument!
