FWES ORCHESTRA SUMMERTIME INFO

Please consider attending a local summer music program if you are staying in the area for most of the summer months, and/or weekly lessons with a private teacher. There are special local summer music programs offered at the Ambler School of Music, Settlement Music School in Willow Grove, and the Wissahickon School District—see Mrs. Herrmann for info. A list of area private teachers is available upon request, and is posted on the wikispace at https://udhsorchestras.wikispaces.com/Private+Teacher+List


Please consider continuing your rentals during the summer months. If you do return the instrument for the summer, be aware that you will start with a whole new contract for the next year, losing any credit earned from this year’s rental. All rentals for Sept. 2017 should be confirmed with the music store by the end of August 2017.
