Thank you for your help and understanding!
Private Lessons
With marching season finished up and concert season in full swing, now is the PERFECT time to start private lessons! Students of all ages can benefit greatly from private study with an expert on their instrument… whether your child is in 5th grade, 12th grade, or anywhere in-between! While some teachers are teaching in-person lessons, many are teaching virtually, which works incredibly well for one-on-one lessons. 
 
Please click here for the Norwin Music Department’s List of Recommended Private Instructors and reach out to any of the individual instructors for pricing / availability.
 
If you’re considering private lessons for your child or your child is already enrolled in private lessons, you should definitely check out the Norwin Play It Forward Fund. This remarkable organization provides funding to help off-set the cost of Norwin Band and Orchestra students’ private lessons. They are eager for more students to apply!
 
For more information and to apply for funding, please check out their website, https://norwinplayitforwardfund.org/.
 
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Mr. Daniels (tdaniels@norwinsd.org) or Mr. Kandrack (bkandrack@norwinsd.org).
Clearance Requirements
 
As required by Norwin School District policy, ALL volunteers assisting with any Band activities MUST have all of their clearances submitted and approved on Norwin's Safe Kids portal. Volunteers must also possess and display their district-issued volunteer ID whenever volunteering at any events. To ensure the safety of our students, there will be NO exceptions.
 
For more information on how to acquire clearances, how to create a Safe Kids account and upload your clearances, and how to obtain a district-issued volunteer ID, please follow this link to Norwin's Human Resource page about clearances:https://www.norwinsd.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=1152753&type=d&pREC_ID=1412367. Once submitted and approved, clearances are valid for up to 5 (five) years from their issue date. 
 
If you are missing clearances, have not submitted any clearances before, or your clearances have expired, we strongly recommend that you begin the process of acquiring new clearances as soon as possible to ensure that you can volunteer whenever those opportunities are available again. Be advised that some clearances can take several weeks to receive.
 
If you have questions about clearances, please contact Bill Bojalad at wfbojalad@comcast.net or Mr. Daniels at tdaniels@norwinsd.org.
