MacPhail Elementary Private Strings


Wayzata Community Ed partners with MacPhail Center for Music to offer after school and evening violin and cello lessons in four of our elementary schools. Students may attend lessons at any of the four schools.

Students will take part in 24 lessons, one dress rehearsal, and a spring concert.

Lessons begin the end of October and continue through early May. The rehearsal will take place Friday, May 8, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. and the concert on Friday, May 15, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.

Every attempt will be made to have 24 lessons, however if Wayzata Public Schools or MacPhail cancels due to weather or unforeseen circumstances, no instruction will take place and instruction will not be rescheduled or refunded. 

Registration deadline is September 20, 2019.

*Violin lesson options: Tuesdays at Plymouth Creek, Wednesdays at Gleason Lake, Thursdays at Greenwood, or Thursdays at Meadow Ridge

*Cello lessons are only offered on Tuesdays at Greenwood

***Students will be notified of exact lesson time and location by October 18.

Please NOTE: The online registration will ask you for more specific information to help with placements. Indicate 2 different schools as choices and give a range of time for lessons. Please provide as much information about your availability as possible to aid in finding a time that works for you. A MacPhail coordinator will be handling all of the placements and scheduling. They will use the information from the registration question to place students. 

Please be aware that it is not always possible to place students at their first or second choice school.
