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.
