Has it been a few years since you played in your old high school band or orchestra? ... maybe more than a few years?

Now that the kids are grown or your career is winding down, have you been getting the urge to play again? Or maybe you have always dreamed of playing an instrument in a musical group but never had the chance?

Wondering what New Horizons Music is all about? Click here to read about why and how it all started.

Still need more reasons to pick up that instrument? Well, this 5 minute TED TALK makes it quite apparent that playing music is probably the BEST way to exercise your brain and playing a WIND instrument gives you a cardio workout to boot!

So here's your perfect opportunity!
The social time at coffee break makes it much more fun than going to the gym.

All our events happen IN DAYLIGHT HOURS, so you can still carry on with your normal evening activities! Bring your friends along. They'll thank you.

Join the Grand River New Horizons Band in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, a group of amateur musicians who get together every week to learn and make music together and have fun in the process. So get your old flute or trumpet out of the attic and come on out. If you don't have an instrument, don't worry. Just bring yourself and we'll help get you started.

In addition to the CONCERT BAND that meets every Tuesday morning,

The JAZZ BAND meets Wednesday and Saturday mornings. (see details)

The BEGINNER BANDS meet Monday and Friday mornings. (see details) If you have always wanted to LEARN TO IMPROVIZE on familiar Jazz/Rock/Bebop tunes from chords, Monday mornings are where that's happening! If you haven't played for a LONG time or want to learn a second instrument, Friday mornings are perfect for you!

As you can see, there is something for everyone. Even string players? Yes, we have a violinist learning to improvize! You can join a smaller ensemble or form one of your own; maybe a brass quintet, woodwind ensemble or string quartet? The possibilities are all here. Check our Events page to view the many places and events where we present our music.

If you're thinking about joining please read the membership form available here and come to the Navy Club on a regular rehearsal date to find out more or check out the latest fun and like us on Facebook!
