The Jefferson Elementary
School Instrumental Music Program is open to
all students in grades one through five.
Weekly classes are offered each Friday after school at Jefferson
Elementary for beginning students with no prior instruction as well
as students with some experience.
This award winning program is directed by Larry Newman and classes are taught by the expert teaching faculty of Children's Music Workshop.
An introductory assembly and demonstraton of the instruments will be presented on Wednesday, September 10 at 8:45 AM for grades 3,4 and5 and at 9:30 AM for grades k, 1 and 2.
First graders may choose to learn the violin.
Second graders may choose the violin, flute, clarinet, trumpet or mini p-Bone.
Third, fourth and fifth graders may choose the violin, flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, mini p-Bone, baritone horn or trombone.
Thirty to forty minute small group lessons will be held each Friday
after school between 3:00 PM and 5:30 PM. Please keep that time
block free on Fridays. This flexibility in scheduling will allow
us to create classes best suited for the enrollment.
The exact lesson schedule will be determined when enrollment
is complete. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
To aid in your planning, note that beginning classes will be
held earlier than orchestra level classes.
This is a year long commitment. Classes begin on Friday, September 26, 2014 culminating with a school orchestra concert on April 14, 2015.
The one-time annual instructioinal fee for this program is $495 and a $25 supply fee covers all music, books and basic supplies your child is provided. The only other cost will
be the rental or purchase of an instrument.
