image003.jpgCCA OPEN HOUSE - Alumni joining us for CCA Open House to support their fellow juniors
and share their insights on the reasons why Band truly makes an excellent CCA choice


image005.jpgBAND CAMP - Band Members displaying their creative talent in designing other
than playing their instruments. Other than sectionals and practices to prepare for SYF,
Band Camp aims to provide an opportunity for members to bond through games and activities. 


image007.jpgMUSIC EXCHANGE AT WOODGROVE - The trumpet section getting useful pointers on
the importance of proper embouchure, which allows them to play their instrument
at full range with a full, clear tone and without any strain to their muscles.


image009.jpgMUSIC EXCHANGE AT XINMIN – JWSS Symphonic Band  listened on as fellow musicians
present their SYF set piece, Festival on Earth by Lee Jin Jun. Music Exchanges provide
a good chance for band members to develop critical listening skills with an aim
to improve instrumental tone quality and awareness towards other instruments in band as well.


image011.jpgMUSIC EXCHANGE AT XINMIN - The SYF team is ready to give their best on the SYF stage
after gaining useful pointers and exposure from fellow musicians of their age.
This definitely makes them feel extremely honored to be a part of the band movement in Singapore.

before entering the SYF Hall! The continual journey of self-improvement and the
friendship formed among JWSS Symphonic Band members throughout preparing
for SYF makes all the hard work worthwhile!

image025.jpgSENIORS’ FAREWELL – Trusty Band Majors, Izzati and Kyle Anne, are always there for the
Band members whenever they needed guidance. With every outgoing JWSB cohort,
goodbyes do not get any easier. With every passing batch too, seniors never fail to reaffirm
the reasons why all the juniors should stay on and push through challenging times in Band.
All the best seniors!

Student Conductor, Iffah Haziqah, leading the Band in the parade segment.

Mr Vincent Lee and the strong support from all the band members.

OVERSEAS IMMERSION TRIP TO BANGKOK, THAILAND – More than a mere exchange of music,
JWSS Band members left Bangkok with a wealth of knowledge. Horwang students are the model

bonds are formed and ties were strengthened.
