Overland Elementary School for Advanced Studies Orchestra Program
The 2016 – 2017 Overland Elementary School for Advanced Studies Orchestra Program is open to all students in grades one through five.
The program is directed by Larry Newman and classes are taught by the outstanding faculty of Children’s Music Workshop.
Instruction is available on violin, cello, flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, and pBone mini.
• First graders may only choose the violin.
• Second graders may choose violin, cello, flute, clarinet, trumpet or mini pBone.
• Third, fourth and fifth graders may choose violin, cello, flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet or mini pBone.
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.
Music classes run from October 4, 2016 through our concert on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at 6:30 PM. Thirty to forty minute classes are offered each Tuesday after school (early dismissal day) beginning on October 4, 2016.
Classes are taught between the hours of 1:45 and 3:45 PM. The exact time of your lesson will be announced after enrollment is complete. Please keep that time block open when registering for the program. First graders will have the first class of the afternoon – meeting at 1:45 PM. A parent volunteer proctors the “homework” room for students waiting to take their lesson on Tuesdays.
A fee of $565 is requested from each participant to cover weekly music instruction for the entire 2016 – 2017 school year. This fee also covers all music, books and basic supplies which your child is given throughout the year as well as the LAUSD facility charges. The only other expenses will be the lease, rental or purchase of the instrument.
Free Music Tuition and Instrument Rental
Each Tuesday from 1:30 to 3:00 PM, a parent volunteer proctors the students in homework club who are waiting to take their lesson. Parent volunteers receive a full tuition waiver and free instrument rental.
