2022-2023 School Year
Orchestra Program Details
Welcome to the CEE Orchestra Program!
All levels welcome and no experience is required!
Students will be grouped in classes of similar instruments and ages, where they will learn how to play their desired string, woodwind, or brass instrument. This program is designed to keep music FUN, so students should expect to play many familiar songs throughout the 25+ week program, in addition to learning the fundamentals of rhythm, harmony and traditional note reading.
Smaller group classes will come together as one larger ensemble in the spring, culminating in a year-end Spring Concert!
- Kindergarteners and 1st graders may only choose the violin. (Violins are sized to fit each individual student)
- 2nd graders may choose the violin or ukulele. (Violins are sized to fit each individual student)
- 3rd graders may choose the violin, cello, flute, clarinet, trumpet, pBone mini, or ukulele. (Violins and cellos are sized to fit each individual student)
- 4th, 5th and 6th graders may choose the violin, cello, flute, clarinet, alto saxophone trumpet, trombone (or pBone mini), or ukulele. (Violins and cellos are sized to fit each individual student)
Instruction begins on Fridays in September, 2022 and runs until May, 2023, culminating in a year-end concert.
Thirty to forty minute small group lessons will be held each Friday immediately after dismissal. Please keep that time block free on Fridays after school. This flexibility in scheduling will allow us to create classes best suited for the enrollment.
Registration begins on September, 13th directly with the school. 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 the younger students and beginning classes will be scheduled earlier than the older students in intermediate and advanced level classes.
Once the schedule is available, please have your child’s schedule clear for their assigned 30 – 40 minute time block. Students who are not scheduled for the first lesson of the day will be escorted to Day Care (at no charge) until their scheduled lesson time.
A program fee is requested from each participant to cover the entire 2022-2023 School Year (September, 2022 – May, 2023).
*Please stay tuned for more information about how to register directly through the school and cost.
The program fee covers instructional costs, as well as all music, books and basic supplies given to your child throughout the School Year.
The following additional resources are also included with your program fee:
- Class Portal Page- weekly class recaps, practice suggestions, sheet music downloads, helpful video tutorials, and much more!
- Interactive video- get extra help by submitting a video for feedback from one of our teachers!
The only other expense will be the rental or purchase of the instrument (see below).
