After School Violin Classes for Next Year

We are accepting applications for group violin classes being offered after school for the 2019-2020 school year. We are hoping to run three classes after school from 3:10 – 4:10 pm based on age and level of experience.

The Monday class will be geared for beginner students in Kindergarten and Grade 1.  There are 8 spots in this class.

The Tuesday class will be geared for students in Grade 2-3 who have been playing for at least 1 year. There are only 2 spots available in that class.

The Thursday class will be geared for students in grades 3-5 who have been playing at least 2 years or more. There are only 4 spots available in that class.

Students who are older but are starting at the beginning level may want to sign up for private lessons throughout the summer so they can catch up with the students who have recently started.

Contact Ms. Allen (jallen@hopelcs.ca) for more information or a registration form.
