Here is a video about the program that our strings teacher, John Birckhead, put together about the program:
The levels are as follows:
  • The beginner program  (never played) will include a half hour lesson on their instrument and a half hour in our piano lab as the theory class.
  • Intermediate are students who have played one full year. They will have a 45 min. lesson and an Intermediate band rehearsal each day.
  • Advanced are 2nd year plus: they will have a 45 min. lesson and an Advanced  band rehearsal each day.
  • Graduating 8th graders will join all High School for a mixed ensemble and then Advanced Band each day. This is a great way for the 8th graders to get a head start on what’s expected for high school.
  • Guitar, Piano: is generally a beginner class for anyone interested who was a third grader this school year or older.
  • Strings: We are continuing our string program, especially for Warren and Green Brook students. 8:30 -9:30 Beginners, 10:15-12:00 Intermediate, and 12-1:30 Advanced. 
  • Jazz Band is offered at the intermediate and advanced levels for an additional charge.
If you are unable to do the full program (11+ days), we also offer a 10 day option, where you choose which of the days your child will be attending.
