What will be offered?
CLS will be offering instrumental music in a band setting for the following instruments: flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, and percussion/bells. In addition, private lessons will be available for flute, beginning ukulele, and beginning violin (for existing violin students). Existing violin students may also play in the band, however, violin will not be offered as an instrument choice for students new to the instrumental program.
What if I play the piano?
Since piano lessons will not be available next year at CLS, piano students are encouraged to seek private lessons from a professional piano teacher. Both Coffey Music and Menchey Music have several piano teachers who offer lessons in the Westminster area and would be great places to begin your search for a teacher. If your child plays the piano and would like to take part in the band, we would love to have them! Piano players often make excellent bell players and can pick up other instruments easily since they already know how to read music.
Stay tuned for more details regarding the instrumental music program towards the end of the summer. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Mrs. Harrison at email@example.com.
