Thirty to forty minute small group lessons will be held each Friday after school between 2:45 PM and 5:00 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 intermediate and advanced level classes.

After school supervision for students waiting to take their lesson is available. The final schedule of classes will be emailed to all applicants.

A music fee of $520 is requested from each participant for the 2014-2015 school year. This fee includes all music books and basic supplies. The only other expense will be the lease, rental or purchase of the instrument. Recorders are provided free.
