Enroll My Child - Program Details
Thank you for enrolling your child/children in Northeastern Music’s Instrumental Music Program. Below is a summary of the program specifics.
Age: Band students must be in grades 4-8. String students must be in grades 3-8. Not all schools offer string programs. If you are unsure if your school offers strings, check with your school music teacher.
No Outstanding Tuition Balance: Customer must be in good financial standing and not have a past due tuition bill with Northeastern Music Programs.
No Outstanding Rental Balance (if applicable): Customer must be in good financial standing and not have a past due rental bill with our parent company, Menchey Music Service.
What is included:
Band Membership: Participation in band for the entire school year.
Group Lessons: Group lessons are offered once a week during the school day. Group lessons start in September at time agreed upon between the teacher and building principal. In the event of a health emergency that forces schools to close, group lessons will be modified or moved to a completely virtual format.
Band Rehearsals: Weekly band rehearsals will be offered to returning students starting in September. No beginning band rehearsals will be offered. Health guidelines and facility availability due to the COVID-19 situation may affect the feasibility to offer regular, large group rehearsals.
Performances: Bands will perform a minimum of 2 concerts during the year. Additional performances may be scheduled by your band director and will be communicated well in advance. Attendance is mandatory at all concerts, competitions, and any performance by the band.
SmartMusic: All students will receive a 1-Year subscription to SmartMusic, a cloud-based tool that will assist your child’s at-home practice.
Music: Students will be issued company-owned sheet music for performances.
What is NOT included:
Instrument and required instructional book: At the end of this process, you will have the option of renting a teacher-approved instrument and instructional book from our parent company, Menchey Music Service.
Music Stand and other accessories: A student music stand is needed for home practice and can be obtained from our parent company, Menchey Music Service if you don’t already have one. In addition, Menchey Music Service can provide you with any other necessary accessories your teacher recommends.
Practice: Students must practice. Students will not improve if they do not practice. Lack of practicing does not just hurt your child; it negatively affects the entire band.
Attendance: Attendance is mandatory at all concerts, festivals, and other performances by the band.
Preparation: Students must bring all materials (instrument, music, pencil) to school on band lesson/rehearsal days.
Encouragement: Parents must take an active role in encouraging your child to practice. They need parental help to learn how to make a commitment.
Commitment: Participation in the band is expected to be a year-long commitment
We encourage all students to commit to the program for the year. For beginners, we strongly recommend they complete 1 full year in the band program to have the true band experience. Before requesting cancellation, please reach out to our office so we, along with your child’s music teacher, can help find ways to keep the motivation and enjoyment going for your child.
There will be a $50 cancellation fee applied to all cancellations.
Installment Plan - 9 monthly debits to your credit card. The first installment is due at enrollment. The remaining 8 installments will automatically be deducted on the 1st of each month beginning October 1, 2020.
