The music program is off to a great start this school year and there’s still time to join!

Dear Parents,

The music program is off to a great start this school year!

This is a just a reminder that it is still not too late to join. If your child has never participated before, there is still plenty of time to get them enrolled and caught up with the classes. If your child has participated, and would still like to join, we’d love to see them back again.

Classes in most schools are available to students in grades 1 and up (violin) or grades 3 and up (band instruments). Grades do vary by school, so please call our office with any questions. Continue reading “The music program is off to a great start this school year and there’s still time to join!”
