How much out of school time is required?
Music is no different than any other curricular area. We ask that your child spend some time with their instrument each and every week – on average between 15 and 30 minutes each night. Think of it as musical homework, but much more fun.
In 7th and 8th grade, there are also weekly sectionals that happen once a week for 45 minutes. All performances for all grades happen outside the class as well.
