The Kenter Canyon Charter Elementary School Instrumental Music Program is open to all students in grades one through five.

The program is coordinated by Larry Newman and classes are taught by the outstanding faculty of Children's Music Workshop.

Weekly classes are offered for 30 to 40 minutes each Friday during the regular school day.

Instruction is available on recorder, flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, p-Bone mini, baritone horn, trombone, violin and cello.

First graders may only choose the violin or recorder. Recorders are provided free with enrollment in the class.

Second graders may choose flute, clarinet, trumpet, p-Bone mini or violin.

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

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

No musical experience is required to enroll in a beginning class.

Students with some prior experience will be placed in an intermediate or advanced level ensemble depending on ability.

To best accommodate all the students, the final schedule will be determined when enrollment is complete. Students will be notified of their lesson time by their classroom teacher and by e-mail.

An orchestra recruitment assembly will be presented to all students on Friday, September 6, 2013 at 10:30 and 11:15 AM in the auditorium. Parents are welcome to attend.

Instruction begins on Friday, September 27, 2013 and runs through the school year, culminating with an evening concert on Thursday, May 15, 2014 at 4:00 PM (beginners) and 7:00 PM (orchestra) in the auditorium.

A one-time music donation of $470 is requested to cover the instructional costs of this year’s instrumental music program. This fee covers all music, books and basic supplies which your child is given. The only other expense will be the lease, rental or purchase of the instrument. Order your instrument online now through The Instrument Place and they will deliver free to school for the first lesson on September 27.

A limited number of scholarships are available to those who request them and every attempt will be made to see that all students who wish to participate are given the opportunity regardless of financial considerations.

Through special arrangements with The Instrument Place, instruments are available for purchase, rent or lease-to-own at up to 45% off the retail price for participating music students.

Visit The Instrument Place for more information and to place your order for delivery to school in time for the first lesson.
