1) 15 MINUTE ONLINE PRIVATE TUTORING SESSION scheduled at your convenience outside of class time.
2) PERIODIC SECTIONAL REHEARSALS
3) MEMBERSHIP IN SCHOOL BAND either during or after school (when available). 2 SCHOOL BAND CONCERTS PER YEAR
4) optional membership in our "TRAVEL" SHOWBAND
* For schools too small to currently support an in school band rehearsal, lessons will be in school.
MORE LESSONS AND FUN ACTIVITIES. LESS MISSED CLASS TIME
PRIVATE ON LINE TUTORING will mean classes will be less affected by "snow days" and school holidays. Parents will have the flexibility to schedule or reschedule lessons as needed using our convenient "online scheduler". More weeks in the school year will also be available for lessons resulting in up to 10 more lessons per school year and up to 75 minutes of instruction per week.
IN SCHOOL BAND REHEARSALS provide a perfect blending of instructional activities. students have the opportunity to participate in a rewarding activity, in person, and with their friends, while having the benefit, rarely available in school band programs, of private lessons which typically average $120 a month (almost 2X the cost of Musical Adventures and without the benefit of a school band.
STRESS FREE AT HOME PRACTICE
Nobody enjoys "nagging" their child to practice. In addition to our at home PRIVATE LESSON, students will now also be able to participate in an ONLINE SUPERVISED PRACTICE SESSIONS, giving students extra days of practice that are built into the program. Students will also enjoy additional practice through the introduction of "ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS INTERACTIVE" which is very popular with students.
REDUCED COST PER LESSON WITH A NEW "BUDGET FRIENDLY" TUITION PLAN
We have reduced the overall cost per lesson. We are still the same program that has been the gold standard for band instruction in NJ private schools for over 30 years, however, our lesson format is now more like that of a PRIVATE LESSON STUDIO and our tuition plan will change to reflect that. Musical Adventures is unique in providing private lessons as part of a school music program. Billing will be on a bi-monthly basis. This "PAY AS YOU GO" approach will be more BUDGET FRIENDLY, REDUCE THE COST PER LESSON, and hopefully allow more students to participate. MUSICAL ADVENTURES DOES NOT TURN STUDENTS AWAY FOR FINANCIAL REASONS. FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE IF THERE IS A NEED.
