From School Messenger email on 9/5/14: 

Greetings from the Instrumental Music Teachers at Eleanor Rush Intermediate School. Our procedure has changed slightly as we move through the technological world. Every student at Rush School received a flyer this week about participating in the instrumental program which also stated that you would be receiving this email. We offer instrumental lessons to any interested student at our school and are trying a new method of spreading the word. Students will be given one (1) thirty-minute group lesson each week during the school day. It will be the same day each week.


This year, all registrations for Instrumental Lessons will be done online. There will be no need to fill out forms and return them. As you can see below, there are two links. Please make a choice on the instrument your child would like to learn and click one of the links below. The forms are very clear and most questions are answered as you continue through. If you have a question after filling out the forms, please contact one of the teachers listed below.




Instructor: Mr. Adams –

Instruments: Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, and Bell Kit (Which is the drum pad and a set of bells).


Instructor: Mr. Hercock –

Instruments: Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass, and Harp



Deadline for registration: Friday, SEPTEMBER 12, 2014 by 3:00pm. Any requests beyond the date and time must be made via email to the teacher or you may send in a note with your child because the online forms will be shut off. Information about how to obtain an instrument are also available as you complete the online form.


You will receive one more email reminder next week about registering for lessons.
