Nestle Ave. Elementary School Instrumental Music Program

nestlelogo-1 copy The 2017 – 2018 Nestle Ave. Elementary School Instrumental Music Program is offered to all students in grades 3 through 5.

The program is directed by Larry Newman and classes are taught by the faculty of Children’s Music Workshop.

Weekly lessons during the regular school day on Wednesdays are offered for beginning students with no prior music lessons as well as for students with some experience.

Instruction is offered on violin, cello, flute, clarinet and trumpet.


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.

There is no fee required to participate.  Funding for instruction is provided by grants and the generous donations of the Nestle Ave. School community. However, your voluntary donation of whatever amount you are able to give will help cover the cost of your child’s participation. The ability to donate has absolutely no bearing on whether a student can participate in orchestra. Any one who wants to participate is welcome. Loaner instruments are available for those who need them.

Instruments are available for up to 45% off the retail price for participating music students through our instrument supplier. Order online now and get free delivery to school for the first lesson. Visit The Instrument Place to place your order. A limited number of free loaner instruments are also available.

Wednesday classes are offered during the regular school day beginning on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 and culminating with a concert on Wednesday, May 2, 2018.
