Please register online for the class, location and time you prefer. You can pay the $385 lesson fee online or at the rental night where you can pay in person. Registration forms will not be accepted by the music instructors. All students must register online. We also strongly encourage you to pay the lesson fee online if possible. We recommend that beginning cello students sign up for lessons on Fridays at Beechwood Knoll if possible.

There will be a String Instrument Rental Night in the Cafeteria at Quincy High School on Tuesday, October 3rd from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm for those students who need to rent an instrument and/or pay for lessons. Lesson books (Essential Elements Book 1), shoulder rests, and music stands will also be available for purchase. We strongly encourage you to rent online with the K and C Music Company. You can then pick up your instrument at the rental night. If your student already has an instrument and you have registered and paid for lessons online, you do not need to attend the rental night.

For further information about the class lessons or evening orchestras please email Mrs. Judy Lai and Mr. Michael DeMarco, Facilitators of Extended Educational Music Programs.
