Instructor - Laura Dean
Violin is offered to students in grades 1 through 3 and viola, cello, and bass is available to students in 4th and 5th grade. Students are accepted into the program based on their musical skills, ability and interest. Extra rehearsals are offered to students in the mornings before school. These rehearsals take place on Mondays and Thursdays from 7:00-7:55 and every other Friday and 7:00-7:30 on the days Ms. Dean has duty. This extra rehearsal is based on students needs as observed in class. A performing group is chosen from students based on their ability to read music and learn songs more quickly and on their playing ability. Extra rehearsals are offered to them in addition to those times.
