Attention Parents of Upcoming 4th grade students:
If you missed a tryout night, you can still enroll your child for an instrument! Just attend our Instrumental Enrollment Night on Monday, May 22nd 2017 7:00 p.m. in the JPLIS gymnasium and choose the instrument your child will play ahead of time. See you there!
Instrumental Music is available to all 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students. Your child's small-group lesson is attached to a specific letter "day" of our 6-day cycle. Please keep track of the cycle days. In addition to the small-group lesson, your child has a large ensemble rehearsal. Full ensemble rehearsals take place every other cycle. Please check the "My Calendar" (link listed on left of this page) for specific rehearsal dates.
Research has shown that studying a musical instrument and being part of an ensemble experience such as band or orchestra increases various skills in individuals, including organization, responsibility, dexterity, study skills, and self-esteem. As a part of the instrumental music program, your child will enrich his or her life through music lessons offered during school hours. He or she will also perform in concerts throughout the school year!
Please note that full ensemble rehearsals are EVERY OTHER cycle day. Please see the calendar (link is listed on the left side of this page) for specific rehearsal dates!
I look forward to making music an integral part of your child's life!
