After School

We have used The Village Music School for over ten years for our after-school guitar and piano classes, and we could not be happier!

—Bruce Barnard, Superintendent of Recreation, Town Of North Castle, NY

Having quality enrichment programs at your after-school center is the key to having happy children and happy parents. We are currently delivering After School Music Club lessons online to small groups learning guitar, piano, and violin. Ask your school’s after care organization about adding The Village Music School’s lessons to the options for your children!

At The Village Music School, we believe after school music programs are an excellent opportunity for young musicians to expand their musical horizons through small music clubs. They will have the opportunity to perform as well as work in small groups with teachers who have exceptional performing experience.

Classes in guitar and violin will be initially offered. Classes in piano or winds can be offered when requested. After school care centers that use the program will be encouraged to have the students perform for their classmates.

All genres of music will be included as part of the program so that students get a well-rounded artistic experience. The music clubs will pick up where school music programs leave off, a chance for students to get that extra attention and increased opportunity to perform.

Class Size And Length

We will run a program with as few as 3 children and our class size will not exceed a ratio of 10 to 1. Classes meet once a week for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on class size. The cost is $25.00 per child per class. We can run the classes in whatever length session the After School Center offers, i.e. 6 weeks, 8 weeks etc.

We can make rental guitars and violins available for an additional charge of $30 for a program session. Keyboards will be provided for piano classes. If a child needs to rent a keyboard for home practice, that can be provided for the same additional charge.

Ask you child’s after school program director about adding The Village Music School’s classes to the menu! Or sign up below for classes about to begin.
