Free Music School is just that-- a place where all students in grades 4-12 can learn to play a musical instrument free of charge.  Students must provide their own working instrument, instruction book and music stand,
and be committed to outstanding attendance.
  (Due to generous donations, we do have a few instruments to loan, free of charge, but the selection is limited.)

Classes are led by volunteer musicians ,"Music Mentors", who work with small groups of students on their instrument of expertise. 

The Free Music School is  able to offer instruction on
all band and orchestra instruments --

          trumpet                        flute                      clarinet                       saxophone
