Also as part of its mission, the NCCO will launch this fall a “first ever” String Education Pilot Program in Nelson County.
Our dream is for everyone in our community to have the opportunity to make music part of their lives. Hands-on, in-class exposure to musical instruments, instruction by professional musicians and opportunities to perform in concerts offer life-long enrichment.
As a first step, the NCCO’s String Education Pilot Program will give 4th and 5th grade area students a chance to study violin starting in early October. Tye River and Rockfish Valley Elementary will host after-school violin classes and all area students – public, private, home-schooled – are welcome. There will be two classes at each school offering weekly, 60-minute, small-group lessons (3-5 students) for 8 weeks.
The tuition for the 8-week fall 2014 course is $150.00, which includes professional instruction and materials. Parents will be responsible for providing or renting an instrument and for providing a music stand. Limited financial assistance is available. Interested students should complete the application for the course and, if needed, the financial assistance application, available on our website: www.nelsoncco.org.
