We are excited about the New School Year at West Portal and  we are always looking for students interested in music. Handbells are a great team ensemble for both those who read music and those who want to learn.

If you are interested we do offer private instruction at the Sloat Campus.

Please let me know for more information.

• MUSIC FEE - We ask that each student pay a (one time-one year) $25 per choir Activity Fee for the purchase of music and supplies needed for each choir. Make checks payable to WPLS – Music Fund.

! MOST IMPORTANT – Please check  on a regular basis under Announcements for Music reminders, schedule information, etc.

 If you have questions please call or email
