After School Music Program

Starting November 2, our After School Music Program will be open on Mondays & Thursdays. 

After School Music Program will Lenard Hall with the Community School of the Arts, and offers a safe, fun and relaxed atmosphere for children to learn to play a new instrument, have quiet time for homework, and play games. This program is attended for middle schoolers in grades 6 - 8 whose parents want them to try something new in a peer setting, or are unable to care for them after school.

Space for this program is very limited, only 10 participants per day. Children will be required to wear masks while inside at the program. When outside masks can be removed as long as supervised social distancing is happening. 

The After School Music Program provides children with a weekly one-on-one 30-minute professional instruction in their musical instrument of choice: Piano, Violin/Viola, French Horn, or Electronic Music Production (EMP). Children will have the opportunity to develop confidence, self-esteem, social skills, patience, as well as enhance coordination and reading skills. The weekly schedule can include activities such as arts and crafts, creative group games, quite time for homework, and a snack provided for all of our after school music program participants.

When school is closed or has an early dismissal due to inclement weather, there is no after school program. This is not a drop-in program. Participants must be pre-registered to participate.
