Third, fourth and fifth graders may choose the violin, flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, p-Bone mini, baritone horn or trombone.

Classes are for beginning students with no prior experience on their chosen instrument as well as for students with prior lessons and experience.

Thirty to forty minute classes will take place on Mondays between the hours of 2:40 and 5:30 PM beginning on Monday, September 22. The final schedule and location of classes will be announced via email after enrollment is complete.

Please clear your child’s schedule on Mondays from 2:40 – 5:30 PM so that he/she is available for their particular lesson time when it is announced. (First grade violin class will be offered immediately following dismissal at 2:40 PM.)

Music Instructional Fees
A music fee of $520 is requested from each participant. This fee includes all music, books and basic supplies which your child is given for the entire 2014-15 school year of music lessons.

The only other expense will be the lease, rental or purchase of the instrument.

A parent volunteer is needed to proctor the students waiting to take their lesson on Mondays. If you are available every Monday from 2:40 – 4:30 PM to help, please email Mr. Newman. Parent volunteers receive a full tuition waiver and free instrument rental.

UPDATE: We now have a parent volunteer. However, please let us know if interested and we can put you on the wait list.
