Fee-based music enrichment programs that provide additional opportunities beyond the music curriculum

 

The Elementary Strings and Orchestra program will be re-formed for the 2017-18 school year due to the elementary school time changes.  We are working on the new plans.  Please check back for updates.  We look forward to the continuation of this popular and successful program.

 

Beginning Strings will be offered after school for interested students in grades 4 and 5 who have no previous playing experience on violin, viola, cello, or bass.

  • No prior knowledge of music reading skills is required.
  • Classes will be held after the regular school day. (Locations for 2017-18 to be determined.)
  • Bus transportation:  students will be bused from their respective elementary schools to the string class location.  Parent pickup and community schools aftercare are options at the end of class.  
  • The annual fee for Beginning Strings is currently $200 
  • Begins the week of September 18, 2017
