Do instrumental lessons cost money?
Instrumental lessons are free. However, students will be responsible for acquiring an instrument and materials. Costs vary depending on instrument. Please contact vendors for more information.
Is there any financial assistance available?
Yes. We are committed to giving every child the opportunity to play an instrument. If money is a concern, we will help in any way we can. Please email your instrumental music teacher for questions about financial assistance. The district has a limited supply of school-owned instruments for students who require financial aid.
What instruments are available?
Orchestra: Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass
Band: Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Baritone and Percussion
Is there a certain amount of spots available for each instrument?
Typically, there is not a specified number of spots for each instrument. However, it depends on the instrument. For example, we couldn't have a band of 30 saxophones. If you are concerned, please contact your child's instrumental music teacher.
When are lessons given?
- Lessons take place during the school day as a pull-out lesson.
- Lessons are 30 minutes once per 5-day cycle.
- Lesson times rotate so that students do not miss the same subject each week.
What is the time commitment?
Instrumental students are expected to practice outside of school.
Practice time expectations can vary depending on the assignment and teacher.
Are there any performances?
Yes! Students perform at a Spring Concert in the evening.
Instrumental teachers will communicate dates for each elementary building.
