2019 – 2020 Music Program Registration
The program is directed by Jason Torreano and classes are taught by the faculty of The Orchestra Place.
The music program is open to all third, fourth and fifth grade students – with or without musical experience.
Students may choose the violin, cello, flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, p-Bone mini, or trombone.
Instruction begins on Friday, September 27th, 2019 after school and runs through the spring, culminating with a school concert scheduled during the school day on May 4th, 2020.
Thirty minute small group lessons will be held each Friday after school between 2:30 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 final schedule and location of classes will be announced via email after 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.
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.
There is no fee required to participate but spaces are limited. Funding for instruction is provided by generous grants and donations. Donations are gratefully appreciated and can be made out to the ‘Calvert Charter For Enriched Studies’.
Because of the nature of a free program paid for by the school, orchestra students must maintain their academics or they will not be allowed to participate. The orchestra program requires a one year commitment spanning the entire 2019 – 2020 school year (September 27, 2019 – May 4, 2020) and regular home practice.
