All students in Kidznotes receive free music instruction four afternoons a week and on Saturday mornings at the Kidznotes nucleos in Durham (Holton Career and Resource Center) and Raleigh (Walnut Creek Elementary). This adds up to 10 hours of instruction a week, taking place each week of the school calendar, as well as a 3-week summer camp. Students are instructed in:
- Music theory
- Instrumental technique
The program is designed to be intense and focused with children making many years’ worth of growth in a short time. To accomplish this, students are divided into three sections- Mozarts (beginners), Brahms (intermediate), and Beethovens (advanced), and are given opportunities to participate in small ensembles such as the Jazz Band and All-Stars Strings.
Entry into Kidznotes is by application only.
