Instrumental Music Program

Dear Parents and Students,

Instrumental music is about to begin at Quail Run Elementary and I am excited to get things started! Instrumental music will be held twice a week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday (please see the specific class times for each instrument). Each class will be divided into similar instruments and will be 45 minutes long.  The first class will start on Monday, August 26th, please make sure that your child has his/her instrument and assigned music book. Music students are expected to participate for the entire year and are required to practice an average of 15 minutes daily. There will be two concerts, one in December and one in May. The Advanced Students will also participate in their respective district-wide music festival.  Dates will be provided once confirmed.


If you do not already have an instrument, you can buy or rent a violin, viola, cello, flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet or trombone. I recommend that you go to a local music store to arrange a rental. They will guide you in acquiring a quality instrument so that your child will have the best chance at success.


Please make sure that you have the following music book that corresponds to the instrument your child will play. Again, the local music stores can help you make sure you have the proper book.

Beginning Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, Violin, Viola, and Cello

I am looking forward to an outstanding year of music making!

Musically yours,

Gail Trenerry
