Schools to hold instrument rental event
Westborough – Westborough Schools will be holding their annual registration and sign up for the both the elementary school string program and band program Tuesday Sept. 16 at Mill Pond School.
Students in third grade or new to the string program in fourth grade may attend an information session and lease an instrument at 5 p.m. at the event.
During the first weeks of school, students in the third grade at Fales, Hastings and Armstrong schools will be introduced to the violin, viola and cello. Students will then be given the opportunity to select one of these instruments to study and receive weekly group lessons. Students in the string program will have the opportunity to participate in school and evening performances. Students in the fourth grade who missed the opportunity to join the string program will be provided with an opportunity to begin instruction on a string instrument as well.
Students in fifth grade who want to join the band program can attend an information session and lease an instrument starting 7 p.m. at the event.
Mill Pond Band Director Paul Tomashefsky will be meeting with fifth-grade children and helping them select a band instrument that is best suited for them, prior to the rental night. It is important that students who want to join the program meet with Tomashefsky prior to the rental night to help them select the best instrument for them.
Westborough High School students who are members of the Tri-M Music Honor Society will assist at both of these events.
Parents with questions about the school district's instrumental music program are invited to call Coordinator of Fine Arts David Jost, at 508-836-7716 for more information.
