Hello WCS Families!
Registration for the ’20-’21 school year at West County Strings is now open and will run through August 15. (download your registration form here) Kirby and I are so looking forward to continuing to build on the fantastic work that so many of you have been doing over the summer, picking back up where we left off with those of you who have been away over the summer, and welcoming new students and their families into our community! The ’20-’21 school year will run from August 24, 2020 – May 29, 2021.
We will be starting private lessons for the ’20-’21 school year on Zoom, but are hopeful this will not go too far into the school year. This will give us an opportunity to assess how students returning to school affects COVID-19 rates. If you or your child have been struggling in the Zoom format, please email us so that we can discuss an alternative lesson plan. We plan for group classes to be a hybrid of outdoor classes as weather permits, as well Zoom group classes, master classes, and performance classes. We are thankful to generous families who will make our outdoor classes possible!
In talking to each of you throughout 2020 so far, Kirby and I both feel like we have gotten to know each of you and our students more deeply. We’re incredibly thankful for our relationship for each of you, and your commitment to music education in your children’s lives. We look forward to this new school year with all of you, and to making it the best and brightest it can possibly be, while prioritizing the health and safety of our students, their families, and everyone with whom they come into contact!
