It's not too early to be thinking about your student's high school schedule! There are MANY benefits your student will enjoy if they stay with music at Oak Park RiVer Forest High school (OPRFHS).
You CAN fit music in to your student's schedule all 4 years! To learn how, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the PDF "How to Take Performing Arts at OPRFHS" - or contact PING! for more information.
PING! is off to a great start - 150 young musicians are playing music at school this fall.
