Instrumental music classes are being formed to teach your child to play one of the Band/Orchestra instruments. All instrumental music classes are held during the art block.
- Beginning string classes (violin, viola, cello or bass) are open to 2nd – 3rd graders only. Beginner strings need to purchase a method book available at school which costs $10.00.
- Advanced string classes are open to 3rd – 5th grades.
- Band Classes are open to 4th-5th graders.
