Clermont County Youth Orchesrta Program for Interested 5th Grade Students:

Dear 5th Grade AE Families,

The Northern Kentucky University Music Prep Department has created the Clermont County Youth Orchestra for West Clermont students in grades 7-12 who have a least one year experience playing a stringed instrument. Our West Clermont students rehearse on Monday evenings at Amelia High.

I have just gotten word that the program is expanding! In partnership with West Clermont, NKU’s Music Prep is now offering beginning strings instruction for students in grades 5-7 who have never played a stringed instrument before.

Parents of 5th grade students who are interested in this opportunity,  there will be a parent information night on January 23, 2012 from 5:15-6:15 at the Amelia High School band/orchestra room.

This is a great opportunity to get more information about the program, ask specific questions, have your child try instruments, get sized, and even place your rental order! Please bring your child to this meeting.

If you can’t attend Information Night, but would still like to enroll your child in the NKU Satellite Strings program, please contact them at (859) 572-PREP.

  • Cost is $160 per semester (February – May) plus the cost of instrument rental and book
  • Classes meet every Monday from 4:45–6:00pm in the Amelia HS band room
  • Students will perform a spring concert and opportunities to continue instruction both during the summer and next year will be available!

To ensure that we have enough instruments on hand to try, please RSVP before Friday, January 20, 2012 by calling (859) 572-PREP or email at
