Collaborative Arts Program

Welcome!

Duke School is pleased to offer a collaborative band program for the 2017-18 school year. Duke School's Collaborative Arts Program is for students without access to a performing arts program.
Sudents will visit Duke School weekly for combined rehearsals with Duke School students. If your child is interested in learning to play an instrument (or already has some experience), and would like to participate, we invite you to join us!

Concerts are held twice yearly on Duke School’s campus, and occasionally other performing opportunities are available.
 
Fee: The fee for participation in Duke School's Collaborative Arts Program is $250 per semester (fall and spring).

Online registration and payment for the Collaborative Arts Program is available.

PRIVATE MUSIC LESSONS

Duke School's Private Music Lessons are also open to non-Duke School students and adults. Questions? Contact Foley Dyson.
"Opening Duke School's music programs to students from schools without band and chorus programs and homeschool families with no access to band or chorus exposes families from other schools to Duke School's campus, culture and community. It also has the added benefit of giving Duke School students an opportunity to work with like-minded students from the surrounding independent school and homeschool community."
