     The School District pays for one half day of instrumental music instruction and the Coe school budget-pays for an additional half 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. During the 2019-2020 school year the day of instruction is Tuesday.

     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.
