No matter your child’s experience level, our program welcomes all students who are interested in learning how to play woodwind, brass, or string instrument.

Smaller groups will come together to form a larger ensemble, culminating in an unforgettable spring concert.

Not only will your child learn valuable skills and techniques that will serve them well throughout their lives, they’ll also have a blast doing it! So why wait? Sign up your child for our Orchestra program today and watch as they discover the joy of music.

Schedule

Instruction begins on Wednesday, February 14th, 2024, and runs through the entire spring semester, culminating in a year-end Concert on Wednesday, June 5th, 2024.

Thirty-minute small group lessons will be held once per week after school on Wednesdays between 2:40 PM and 4:40 PM. Please keep that time block free on Wednesday. This flexibility in scheduling will allow us to create classes best suited for the enrollment.

After enrollment is complete, we will announce the final schedule and location of classes via email. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Once the schedule is available, please have your child’s schedule clear for their assigned 30-minute time block. Students waiting to take a later lesson may opt to go home with parents and then return to school at lesson time. Or, contact the school regarding available campus supervision for students waiting to take their lesson.
