After School Lesson Program

The Norwood Public Schools music faculty strongly encourages all music students to take regular lessons in addition to their participation in our performance ensembles. The expert instruction given by our after school staff provides a level of individual attention that cannot be matched in an ensemble setting.

Norwood High School

Private vocal and instrumental lessons will be offered after regular school day hours at the Senior High School.  Tuition is $25.00 per half hour lesson. Students may obtain lesson registration forms from their ensemble directors; private teachers will then contact you directly in order to schedule lessons and establish a payment plan. *Please note: as stated in the NHS Program of studies, private lessons are part of the course requirements for all students enrolled in an honors level music ensemble, and are strongly recommended for students enrolled in a college level ensemble.

Coakley Middle School

Option 1, Private Lessons: Private vocal and instrumental lessons will be offered after regular school day hours at both the Coakley Middle School and the Senior High School.  Tuition is $25.00 per half hour lesson. Students may obtain lesson registration forms from their ensemble directors; private teachers will then contact you directly in order to schedule lessons and establish a payment plan.

Option 2, Class Lessons:  If you feel that your son or daughter is not ready to commit to weekly private lessons, small class instrumental lessons are offered for CMS students only. Small class lessons are group lessons consisting of up to six students who play at a similar skill level. These lessons cost $12.50 per 45-minute lesson, paid for by semester, and administered through the Fine Arts Department. Every attempt will be made to schedule the class lessons directly after school in order for students to be able to take the late bus, but please be aware that this may not always be possible as the number of classes scheduled is dependent upon enrollment.

No student will be denied the opportunity to participate in any Fine Arts program due to financial hardship. Any financial concerns should be directed, in writing, to the Director of Fine Arts. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call the Fine Arts office at (781) 352-3546.
