2022 Spring Semester
Music Program Details
Welcome back to Music!
All levels welcome and no experience required!
Students will be grouped in classes of similar instruments and ages, where they will learn how to play their desired instrument. This program is designed to keep music FUN, so students should expect to play many familiar songs throughout the 15+ week spring semester program, in addition to learning the fundamentals of rhythm, harmony and traditional note reading.
If conditions permit, smaller group classes will come together as one larger ensemble in the spring, culminating with a final year-end recital or concert video!
- Kindergarteners, 1st and 2nd graders may choose the violin or piano/keyboard.
- 3rd through 5th graders may choose the violin, cello, piano/keyboard, or guitar.
Instruction begins on Thursday, January 27th, 2022 and runs through May.
Thirty to forty minute small group lessons will be held each Thursday after school between 2:45 PM and 4:30 PM. Please keep this general time block free on Thursdays until we create the final schedule. 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.
Once the schedule is available, please have your child’s schedule clear for their assigned 30 – 40 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 ‘Beyond the Bell’ or alternative campus supervision for students waiting to take their lesson.
All students should be picked up immediately following the conclusion of their class.
A program fee of $350 is requested from each participant to cover the entire 15+ week school-year spanning January 27th, 2022 through May, 2022. The program fee is due with your registration.
Free Music Tuition and Instrument Rental:
A parent volunteer is needed to assist with administrative logistics on Thursdays.
If you are available every Thursday from 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM to help, please email Jason directly at Jason@TheOrchestraPlace.com. Parent volunteers receive a full tuition waiver and free instrument rental in exchange for their weekly assistance.
The program fee covers instructional costs, as well as all music, books and basic supplies given to your child throughout the year.
The following additional resources are new and included with your tuition:
- Class Portal Page – weekly homework assignments, 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).
Private Online Lessons - *Optional*
We HIGHLY RECOMMEND supplementing your music classes with online private lessons!
Add one-on-one private online lessons once per week or once every two weeks for additional online instruction. The lessons are scheduled at mutually convenient times with one of our professional instructors. Private lessons are charged on a recurring basis, once the number of lessons in your block have been completed.
Duration: Ongoing – Charged automatically as your pre-paid lesson blocks are completed.
Private Lesson Fee:
30-minute lessons – scheduled weekly: $160 per block of 4 lessons
30-minute lessons – scheduled every other week: $80 per block of 2 lessons
Getting your instrument
Discounted rental and purchase prices have been arranged for participating music students through our official instrument supplier. All prices from our supplier include FREE DELIVERY to school at the first lesson and pick up at the end of the program following the year-end concert. Visit The Instrument Place to place your order.
Need a Piano?
If you’re enrolling in the piano class it is important to select a keyboard that is lightweight for easy transport to and from school. We’ve selected some portable keyboard options below that are even lighter than a trumpet or violin! Click the images below to order on Amazon with fast Prime delivery. 32, 37, and 44 key models are sufficient for class, but no fewer than 32 keys.
(Please select a keyboard that has battery power or that can be fully-charged in addition to a power cord for independent use in class.)
