Awesome Kids - After School Sept 2018-May 2019)


This program is for 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders who want to learn a band or orchestra instrument as part of the Awesome Kids Program.  Instruments can be loaned for only $9 per month!


This program is perfect for students who don’t want to wait to learn an instrument or those who want to learn without a long term commitment.


Because a 90 minute lesson on a new instrument is very long, we teach small individual OR group lessons, then students enter another class for the remaining time, such as Engineering for Kids, Music Technology, Minecraft EDU Computer Programming and others.

Practice Records

Students cannot improve if they do not practice.  Practicing at this age is also something parents should manage with their students.  Practice records are provided so students manage their practice time and improve.
