Instrumental and Voice Private and Group Classes (Students Entering Grades K1 to 8):
This summer we want to give many students the opportunity to join the music program. We encourage parents to share our view that the study of music represents a most valuable endeavor toward advancing your child’s education. The present research has shown that playing an instrument increases brain development, as well as promoting the development of the mental discipline, teamwork, and self-esteem. The enjoyment of music and its lifelong appreciation are truly priceless gifts. Therefore we are offering the following opportunities. Open enrollment until June 1, 2017.
A. Trumpet Lessons (45 min)
