Elementary Band/String Lessons

Hello OJR Families!
Is your child interested in learning a band and/or string instrument this year?  Currently, beginning band/string lessons will start on October 12th so the process to enroll your child will move quickly.  In order to help you with this process, the music teachers have compiled a website with all the information about our instrumental lesson program for your convenience.   Please make sure to visit this website with your child so that they can view all the instruments taught in lessons, demonstrated by OJR teachers.  There is also information from our music vendor Menchey Music to help you with their rent-to-own program.
Students in 3rd - 6th grade are able to participate in string lessons.  Students in 4th - 6th grade are able to participate in band lessons.  Students are allowed to participate in both.
There will also be a virtual meeting through Google Meet on September 17th at 7:00 PM with the OJR teachers and Menchey Music to further help assist you with the lesson program and acquiring an instrument.  
There is a link on the website to register your child for lessons, as well as a link to Menchey's rental application.  The Google Meet link will be provided on the website on the afternoon of September 17th as well.
If you have any further questions, please contact your child's respective teacher below:
