Band at AOLP

Instrumental Music at the Academy!
Learning to play an instrument is one of the best gifts we can give our children! Band is a safe place for all, a creative outlet and a challenge. Learning an instrument increases cognitive reasoning, enhances collaborative work, gives an emotional outlet and offers creative thinking. We hope that your child chooses to pursue an opportunity to learn an instrument and extend their creative knowledge.
Please use the form below to sign up to participate in band with Mr. S. Individual/small group lessons will take place during the school day and before school (at 8 am). Please know that families are responsible for renting their child's instrument. We recommend using elefante music in Berkeley Heights.
This opportunity is offered to all students in grades 4-8. The cost to participate for the year is $300. If families choose to pay by check, they can be made payable to The Academy of Our Lady of Peace. Families may opt to pay using Smart Tuition. Mr. S will follow up with additional information regarding instrument rental after registration.
