About

Come join us!

The Edmonton Sabers Marching Band, an award-winning marching band for children aged 6 to 14, is always looking for enthusiastic members to join the band! Increase your children’s self-esteem by having them learn music or dance skills, get physically active, and perform and go on tour as part of a team.

Lots of opportunity for little cost

No previous musical experience is required to join Sabers. We provide youth with quality music and dance instruction twice a week for only $40/month and a $75 registration fee. That is at least 12 hours of instruction each month, for an average of $3.33/hour! Nowhere else can give your child that level of teaching for such a low cost.

Instruction is available for saxophone, trumpet, mellophone, low brass, percussion and colourguard. All instruments are provided for student use. A $50 deposit covers your uniform and your instrument or colorguard equipment. Edmonton Sabers meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:15 to 8:15 pm, with one weekend workshops per month. We also offer youth an opportunity to travel on tour each summer. The cost is only $50, plus spending money, for a 10 to 14-day trip that usually travels through several Canadian provinces and the United States.

Band is a family affair

In order to keep costs to a minimum, parent/guardian participation is strongly encouraged. You may participate as a Board member, event chaperone, or bingo/fundraiser volunteer.
