    Coordinator: Kathy Orchard   Email:  kathy.t.orchard@gmail.com (preferred contact method), or you may leave a message at the Comm. Ed. Office, 978-251-5151.

    Location/Time: Lessons will primarily be held at Chelmsford High School in the after school and early evening hours.

    Offerings:  Lessons will be offered on most wind and orchestral string instruments, piano, voice and guitar.  The offerings will be based on student enrollment.


    Teachers: Lessons will be taught by qualified instructors in partnership with the Fine Arts Department.


    Lesson Format: Students will be able to take weekly thirty minute or one hour lessons.  Semi-private lessons (groups of 2) will be offered on a very limited, case by case basis, provided appropriate groupings can be made.  Semi-private lessons are not available on piano. 


    Calendar: Lessons begin the week of September 18th and end in June.  We will hold two fifteen-week sessions, with two make-up weeks at the end of each.  No lessons will be held on school vacations, holidays or cancellations.     


    Tuition: Tuition for the 2017-2018 school year will be split into two 15 week sessions.  The $50 registration fee will be assessed once per school year.  The cost for one session is as follows:


    Half-Hour Private Lesson:  $375 + $50 registration fee = $425 per student

    One Hour Private Lesson:   $720 + $50 registration fee = $770 per student


    Half-Hour Semi-Private Lesson (group of 2):  $188 + $50 registration fee = $238 per student

    One Hour Semi-Private Lesson (group of 2):  $360 + $50 registration fee = $410 per student


    Lessons are paid in advance. No lessons will begin until tuition is paid.  No refunds may be issued after the session has begun.          


    Make-Up Policy: Students are allowed one excused absence per session.  An excused absence is for reasons of illness or emergency only, provided the teacher is notified in advance.  Excused absences will be made up during the make-up week or at the convenience of the instructor.  Lessons missed due to unexcused reasons shall not be made up.  Due to scheduling issues, there are no make-ups for semi-private lessons. No refunds may be issued.


    Recitals: Optional, informal recitals will be scheduled mid-year and in June, subject to sufficient interest.


    Registration Process: If you are interested in signing your child up for lessons, please fill out the Lesson Program Registration Form.  You will then be contacted by the program coordinator.  If a session has already begun, you may still sign your child up if the instructor’s schedule has an opening.  Please contact Mrs. Orchard if you have any questions.
