This summer we want to give many students the opportunity to join the music program. We encourage parents to share our view that the study of music represents a most valuable endeavor toward advancing your child’s education. The present research has shown that playing an instrument increases brain development, as well as promoting the development of the mental discipline, teamwork, and self-esteem. The enjoyment of music and its lifelong appreciation are truly priceless gifts. Therefore we are offering the following opportunities.
A. Trumpet Lessons (45 min)B. Trombone Lessons (45 min)C. French Horn Lessons (45 min)D. Percussion Lessons (45 min)E. Voice Lessons (30 min)F. Woodwind Lessons: Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone (30 min)G. Piano Lessons (30 min)H. Suzuki Violin (30 min- group of 3 students max)
We hope you agree with our strong belief that every child should have an opportunity to participate in music, to understand and appreciate it.
There will be 2 sessions this summer of 4 weeks each for each of the band instruments and voice classes. The 45 min classes will be $180 per session, the 30 min classes will be $120 per session.
