Have you been to our YouTube Channel? There are many educational and fun videos to watch. Here is a PLAYLIST for String Academy 1, check it out!
Classes take place over Zoom this fall for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders, beginning Nov. 16th. You can choose before or after school, Mon/Wed or Tues/Thurs. Classes will be divided by instrument, and will be 45 minutes long. Smaller class sizes will allow teachers to give more individual attention. We provide the instruments at a very low rental fee. Instrument distribution locations will be announced after classes begin.
The cost is $310 for the school year and $90 for instrument rental. We offer income-based scholarships for both, based on federal guidelines. For students attending Chavez, Howard, McCornack, or River Rd, we have a lower fee schedule because of our partnership with 4J’s BEST enrichment program.
PLEASE NOTE: Our longstanding partnership with the 4J school district makes this program possible. Since we have limited capacity, registrations are currently open to 3rd, 4th and 5th graders attending a 4J school. However, if we have room for more after the first deadline of Nov. 12th, we would be very glad to invite students from other schools and districts. So please stay tuned!
