Band and Strings



Greenwich Catholic School is proud to continue our partnership with MusicKids! Lessons begin in early October and are once a week during the school day. No worrying about scheduling lessons or transportation to and from lessons. The lessons are once a week and are in groups of 2-4 students. Violin is open to ages 3 and up, so whether your child is in PreK3 or in 8th grade, they have the opportunity to study violin.

Registration is done online and will be open in September. MusicKids will be conducting an in-school demonstration for the students in September. In the meantime, if you are interested in more information, please visit, or email Andrew Knebel directly






Greenwich Catholic School is proud to continue our partnership with Paul Effman Music! Students in grades 3-8 are eligible to enroll.


Lessons on the following instruments will be offered: Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone and Percussion. Lesson groups will be divided into small ensembles (usually consisting of 5 – 8 students per group) by instrument and/or experience. Lessons will occur during school once a week. No experience is required.


The current cost of the lessons per student is $62 per month over nine months. We offer discounts for families with more than one child in the band. Instruments can be rented or purchased through Paul Effman Music. Rental prices are $109.00 for all instruments (per school year) except Saxophone, which is $154.00 (per school year).


There will be a band assembly on Tuesday, September 11th at 10:00am. Students will hear and see the instrument in the band program and will come home with formal information at that time.
