Williston Kids Community Orchestra


A Brand New Instrumental Program!


3rd and 4th grade students who reside in Williston are invited to join this brand new orchestral program! This program is for students who wish to learn violin, viola, or cello. Students will learn these instruments in a group setting. No musical experience is needed to join the 3rd and 4th grade orchestra.

The first half of the year will be devoted to students becoming comfortable with playing their chosen instruments by focusing on technique and musicianship. After the holiday break in December, we will continue working to improve playing skills while beginning to work on orchestral music for our end of the year concert! 

Information sessions will be scheduled mid to late May, and in August so parents and children can be introduced to the three instruments that will be offered, as well as ask any questions they may have about the orchestral program and rental instruments. Dates for these sessions will be posted here once they have been scheduled. 

Registration  will begin June 1, 2020. After registering, a Square Invoice will be sent to the parent / guardian listed on the registration form. Registration will run from June 1, 2020 to August 28, 2020. The exact start date will be posted mid-March.  

Students will be expected to be picked up promptly at the end of each rehearsal. There will be no child care offered with this program. Students who are not picked up by 4:35p will be subject to a $5 fee for every 5 minutes late that parents / guardians pick up their child(ren).  

This program is being privately run by me, Sharon Waxman. I am not being offered employment by Champlain Valley School District to run this program and so there will be registration fees associated with registering for the 3rd and 4th grade orchestra program. 

Please email to register for one of the dates below. It is free to attend info sessions but they will be limited to 9 participants each for ease of getting questions answered. More info sessions will be added if there is enough interest.
