REACH Students

2018-2019 Academic Year is Here!

We are so excited about this year!  Here are a list of facts concerning this years violin program at REACH S.T.E.A.M Academy

  • Classes begin WEDNESDAY, September 12th.  Last Day of Class May 29th.  There will be no classes in June.  
  • Students must be in 2nd grade or above to join.  Exception is made for returning students from last school year.  
  • Classes will be offered Wednesdays during zero period from 7-740 AM for Beginner students, and Wednesdays after school for Intermediate students from 1 - 140PM.  Advanced students will stay additional time and be dismissed at 2PM.  
  • THERE ARE ONLY 20 OPENINGS.  The first 20 students to register will be sent a secured payment link.  Spot will be secured upon making payment and signing parent contract.  Payments accepted electronically only.  No cash or check.    
  • Each student is responsible to bring their own instrument, shoulder rest, and 1-inch 3-ring binder (w/hard cover) to class each week.  
  • Instrument quality is VERY important.  Students will be motivated to practice more if their instrument produces a good sound. Preferred vendor is Cruz Violins, located at 4126 Sunnyside Dr, Riverside 92506.  Their phone number is 951-781-1195. They offer a very affordable rent-2-own program which we highly recommend.  Please contact us BEFORE purchasing instrument from alternate source.  
  • Registration fee is $30 for the year.  Monthly tuition is $80 and due by the 3rd of each month.  Any payments coming after the 3rd will incur a $15 late fee.  In the event that the 3rd falls on a weekend or holiday, the next business day will be the deadline. 
  • A parent contract must be signed first day of class indicating commitment for the entire 2018-2019 school year.  This is a sponsored program & it's imperative that we maintain full enrollment for the duration of the year.  Parents may be released from contract for extenuating circumstances only at the discretion of Crescendo's CEO & Director, Kybra Minisee.  The parent(s) will be responsible for full tuition for the month regardless of the day released from contract.
  • Each student is required to practice a minimum of 30 min/day.  Practice logs will go home each week and are due returned at the next lesson.    
  • There are two mandatory performances during the school year:  December 20th Winter Performance, March 29th Spring Performance, and a Student Recital TBA in May.   There will be other performance opportunities throughout the year (ex. Festival of Lights), which will be communicated as dates are solidified.  
  • Parents are required to participate in one fundraiser per year. More details will follow...
