Music Lessons 

Vine students will now be having regularly scheduled group music classes added to their curriculum.  These will focus on music performance, production, appreciation, and theory.  Additionally, we will be offering music lessons on a sign up basis:  

  • Mr. Alex will work with one to three students at a time.  Students in grades two through eight are eligible for now. 

  • Students will meet with Mr. Alex roughly every fourth school day and may be assigned practice in between. That means we will have time for at least ten lessons this year for each student. 

  • Instrument options include guitar, bass guitar, violin, viola, cello,  double bass, flute, clarinet, saxophone (alto and tenor), trumpet, french horn, trombone, baritone, tuba, keyboard, & ukulele.

  • The cost for these ten lessons is $300 per student. Parents must also rent or purchase the needed instrument. Sign up is on a first come, first serve basis.
