LMS Music Academy

The After School Music Academy offers students the opportunity for in-depth study of a musical instrument on campus after school. Professional musicians offer private instruction in piano, guitar, ukulele, and violin; as well as trumpet, clarinet, sax, flute, and cello by special arrangement. The culmination and highpoint of the year is a celebratory recital for parents and friends.

For questions about the program, please contact the program coordinator, David Chiorini at dchiorini@shschools.org.

List of 7 frequently asked questions.

  • What is the Parent's Role?

    Your most important role is to be a cheerleader, and to let your children know how much you like to hear them play. When you're able, sit down with them at practice time and it will make music even more special to them. Listen to music with them, take them to concerts, and show them that music is fun and important to you.
    On a practical level, you will need to provide an instrument and establish a routine for regular practice. It's essential that your child attends regularly and brings the assigned music each week.
    The teacher will offer guidance on renting or purchasing instruments, expectations for practicing at home, and tips for helping the child succeed. Parents are welcome to observe lessons by arrangement with the teacher.
  • Who are the teachers?

    All of our instructors are highly trained performing musicians and experienced teachers who love working with kids.
  • What does it cost?

    Tuition is charged per year or per semester. The Enrichment Program fee for registration is $90 for the year or $45 per semester.

  • What if my child misses a lesson or discontinues?

    Student absences are not made up (this includes sports, school play, illness, etc). In the event that a teacher is absent, the lesson will be taught by a qualified sub, made up, or credited.

    Because teachers prepare specifically for each day’s lessons, parents must give 24 hours advance notice of absences.

    Lessons begin September 11, 2017 and commitments are either for the Full School Year, the Fall Session, and/or the Winter/Spring Session (per your registration).
  • How do I sign up and when will I know my child's lesson time?

    In the 2017/18 school year we will be offering a Full School Year registration as well as Fall only and Winter/Spring only. Students with a Full School Year commitment will be given priority in choice of lesson days/times. The registration window for Full School Year registration will open on Monday August 21, 2017

    We also offer the option to register by semester for either Fall commitment and/or Winter/Spring commitment (please note Winter/Spring is considered 1 session). The registration window for the Fall only commitment will begin on Monday August 28, 2017.

    The assignment of lesson times will be done as part of the registration process. This is new for this school year. Please register early to set the best possible schedule for your student and for yourself. Also, please consider your time wisely. We will not be able to accommodate lesson time changes during the year.

    Additionally, we will have one recital for the school year, in the Spring.
  • When do lessons take place?

    Lessons are scheduled during Enrichment Program hours (dismissal to 6 p.m.) in 30, 45, or 60 minute windows. Lessons meet on the days that Enrichment is open, including Parent Conference Days, but not during school holidays or half days.
  • How do I pay?

    New for this year, registration, lesson time choice and payment are all done at the same time. Payment is required at the time you confirm your registration. If your child is scheduled for a day of the week with extra holidays, it is factored into the tuition charge.

    Registration for 2017-18 will open August 21, 2017
