Description of Curricular Theater Arts Program at Adams:  Theater Arts is an exploratory one term long class that is an introductory course for students. The class covers units in improvisation, acting and theater composers of the last 100 years. Students then analyze and respond to a musical film and end with a costuming unit with a final project.  Fifth and Sixth graders meet in separate classes.  Classes meet on alternating days.  (One CEP class does meet over a year, twice a cycle.)  Although theater arts covers musicals in a theater context, it is not a musical class or a substitute for a general music class.  (Mr. Brendan Cawley)

Instrumental Private Lessons: Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced Levels for Grades 4-12

After school HALF-HOUR PRIVATE lesson with your child and their teacher. Lessons for clarinet, saxophone, flute, trumpet, trombone & euphonium (baritone) will be held in the WHS or AAMS, depending on the teacher. 

What a great and exciting way for your child to become more proficient on their instrument; practicing at home, band rehearsals, PLUS a private instructional lesson with talented, professional teachers! The registration form has the teacher information including their contact information. To enroll for the Instrumental Music Lessons program, please fill out the sheet on the back. Sign it and return the registration form to your child’s music teacher; Ms. Kenny, Mr. Shirosky, or Ms. Gilbert. 

Payment installments will be MONTHLY. On the first lesson of the month, a check made out to the TOWN OF WEYMOUTH should be handed into your child’s private lesson teacher. Each lesson is $17.00. If your child misses a lesson, it is up to their teacher if a make-up lesson can be arranged. These are professional teachers who work in other communities to better our young musicians and they may not have the means of doing make-up lessons and/or rescheduling. 

For more information about the program, please email me, I am thrilled we have this program! I look forward to working with you and your child this year!
