    The School District pays for one half day of instrumental music instruction and the Coe school budget pays for an additional day. This second half day is paid for through a voluntary tuition of $250 per year. Scholarships are available for those unable to pay. Instruction takes place in small instrument-alike groups. The program provides instruction on the following instruments: flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, violin and cello, with the inclusion of additional instrumentals as time permits. SPS provide instruments to students who qualify for free or reduced lunch. An estimated 1300 instruments per year are loaned district-wide. Every attempt is made to ensure all students can participate. Instruments will be provided to students enrolled in the FRL program on a first come, first served basis.
