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

The program is directed by Larry Newman. Debbie Klak and Mandy Fey are the music specialists.

Weekly classes are offered for 30 to 40 minutes each Monday or Wednesday during regular school hours beginning Wednesday, September 18, 2013 for violins and Monday, September 23, 2013 for woodwinds and brass.

Students leave their regular classroom at the assigned music time to take their lesson.

Instruction is available on recorder, flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, baritone horn, pBone mini, violin and cello.

First graders may only choose the violin or recorder. Recorders are provided free with enrollment in the class. (What is a recorder?)

Second graders may choose recorder, flute, clarinet, trumpet, pBone mini or violin.

Third grade and higher may choose flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, pBone mini, baritone horn, violin or cello.

Because of the nature of a pull-out program, orchestra students must maintain their academics or they will not be allowed to participate. The orchestra program requires a one year commitment and regular home practice.

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.

Classes run from September through May (approx. 30 weeks), culminating with a spring concert in May 2014.

A one-time music donation of $450 is requested to help cover the instructional costs of this year’s instrumental music program. In addition, a $25 music/supply fee is requested to cover all music books, sheet music and basic supplies such as reeds, valve oil, violin rosin, etc. which your child is given.

The only other expense will be the lease, rental or purchase of the instrument. Through our instrument supplier, The Instrument Place, instruments can be ordered online now for free delivery to school for the first lesson on September 18. Recorders are provided free of charge.

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.

Class size is limited so please submit your registration ASAP to reserve your place in the class.
