Aspen Music Fest’s after-school music programs now registering students

The Aspen Music Festival and School's valleywide after-school music programs are registering new students through Oct. 5.

The programs, now in their 23rd year, serve students in 16 schools between Aspen and Glenwood Springs.

These programs are designed to complement the music instruction students receive from schools and private instructors. AfterWorks offers three main programs: Beginning Strings, Lea d Guitar and the newly expanded Maroon Bel Canto Choirs.

Beginning Strings offers instruction in violin, viola or cello to students in grades 2 through 5 ($275 for 20 or more weeks of classes, a starter supply pack, private lessons, concerts and snacks). Lead Guitar is open to students in grades 4 and higher, and the program gives students instruction in classical guitar technique, music reading, theory, performance skills and ensemble playing ($225 for 20 weeks of classes and concerts). The Maroon Bel Canto choral program is expanding into two ensembles for the 2018â€"19 school year in order to best meet the needs of young singers of varying ages: The Maroon Bel Canto Children's Chorus for students in grades 3 through 5 and the new Maroon Bel Canto Singers, a smaller and more select ensemble for older students designed for students in grades 6 through 8 ($195 for 20 weeks of rehearsals, concerts, supplies and more).

Scholarships are available.
