2017-2018 Classes

All classes begin the first week of October. Classes are only held on days that there is school. In the event of closures or weather delays, after-school classes will be held when the district permits after-school activities. Students may attend a class at another school if necessary due to rides or scheduling, and home school students may attend class at any school. Because classes vary slightly in number of sessions, cost varies slightly. Each classes' registration form will have the fee for that particular class.

Beginning Classes

Beginning Class is for those who are playing a violin, viola, or cello for the first time, switching to a new instrument, or want to improve their fundamental skills before advancing to intermediate level. Students must be 3rd graders or older.

Instrument Rental

Rental instruments are available for students in our program. All South Shore Elementary students and North Albany Elementary beginning violins and violas have the use of school instruments for free, so do not need to rent instruments. We cannot guarantee that instruments will be available for all students, especially cellos. We recommend registering early and attending the kick-off night. Rates for the fall term (Oct-Jan) are:

Violins and Violas $40*
Cellos and Basses $80*

*If you received a scholarship for the 2017-2018 school year, tuition and instrument rental is discounted 50%.
