Program Information:The Hamilton Wentworth District School Board Strings Instruction Program is offered through Community Continuing Education. The Strings Program provides an opportunity for children enrolled in grades 4 to 8 attending HWDSB schools to learn to play the violin or cello. This program is a fee-for-service program and fees are payable at the time of registration. Lessons are taught in the students’ home school once a week during the instructional day which means lessons may occur during regular class time, nutrition breaks or lunch break. If we do not have enough registrations at a school, there is the option of your student taking lessons at Nora Frances Henderson Secondary School on Wednesday evenings.For an added fee, there is an opportunity for your child to play in an Orchestra. This enhances the skills learned in the regular lesson and prepares students for future violin or cello success!Fees are for 30—1/2 hour lessons. If you add orchestra, your child is then going to have an additional 30—1 hour long orchestra classes!INSTRUMENTS ARE PROVIDED AT NO COST!MUSIC BOOK INCLUDED! All students will receive a music instruction book relevant to their own level to use and keep!! There are two concert opportunities (one in winter and one in spring) for all students enrolled in the Strings Program!See www.hwdsb.on.ca/cce/strings for full program information, fees and payment schedule.
