2015-2016 General Music and Instrumental Band


Hello and Welcome from Mr. Taylor Takach, the Music and Instrumental Band teacher at MLFNS-D!
Hello to all parents and students of MLFNS - Dalian. My name is Mr. Taylor Takach, and I am the Pre K to Grade 9 music and band teacher here at our school. I am very excited to continue working with all involved members of the school, including all students, parents/guardians, as well as my fellow colleagues! This will be my third year living in China and working at our wonderful school, MLFNS-D! I come from the city of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and I spent five years studying Music, Conducting, and Education at Western University in London, Ontario. I have been playing the saxophone since I was in elementary school, and my main instrument of study at Western University was the piano.

Pre-K to Grade 4 participate in General Music classes which focus on singing, listening, reading notated music, and other fundamentals. Additionally, we play percussion instruments and students in grades 3 and 4 play the recorder. Students in Grades 5-9 are required to participate in our Instrumental Band program. Parents, please take time to read about the instrument requirements for this program.
