The Canyons School District offers orchestra for students in grade 4 and 5, no experience necessary. Instruments include violin, viola and cello. All students need to provide their own instrument. Some orchestra instruments may be available for rent from the school at a cost of $80.00 for the school year. Please check with the orchestra teacher for availability. Instruments can also be rented or purchased from several local vendors at a reasonable rate. Given that instruments are very fragile, teachers will go over proper care of the instrument. The rental fee DOES NOT cover damage to a school owned instrument caused by student neglect. Please never try to repair the instrument yourself! If there are problems, discuss the issue with the teacher. No refunds are available on rental fees for students who do not remain in the program the full school year.
Classes are held before or after school twice a week. Parents/Guardians are responsible for transportation. Tuition is $180.00 for the school year. Tuition can be paid in one lump sum or in payments. Eligible students can apply for a “fee waiver” to cover the tuition; however, fee waivers do not include instrument rentals. Students on Free or Reduced lunch need to fill out a separate fee waiver application for this program each year. To apply for a fee waiver, please fill out the “Fee waiver application” form attached and return to the school your child attends for academics. Students will also need to purchase a method book for the class from a local vendor. Approximate cost of the book is $8.00 – $10.00. Please check with the teacher for information on what book is being used. You can email teachers directly from the orchestra website (information below).
Payments can be made by check, money order, cash or credit card. Payments need to be made at the beginning of the orchestra class (October $180.00), or two equal payments (October & February @ $90.00 each). You may also choose to do 8 equal payments of $22.50, payable at the beginning of each month October through May. ALL payments must be made by May 1, 2019.
To avoid lost or delayed payments, checks or money orders should be mailed directly to:
