Sparks Music School forms new band for homeschooled students


The Sparks Music School has just recently created a band specifically for students that are homeschooled.

The owners of the school have a son who is homeschooled and there are many students in the area that attend homeschooling, and so the school decided to create a program for those students.

“We just want to make sure that we’re able to serve that community and help them have that same fun and experience learning to play music in a group with other kids since they don’t attend regular public school,” Meredith League Office Manager said.

The program will include all band and string instruments taught by Michael Manning who has a bachelor’s in music education. The students will get to perform twice throughout the year with a recital in January and June.

The school is looking to have a small group for the program to be able to focus on each student.

“They’ll be able to really get a lot of out of it, even more one on one time than maybe they would if they were in a regular school band” League said.

Classes will be on Friday’s from noon to 1 p.m.  The group class is $65 with a onetime registration fee of $99 including books and materials. There is also an option for a trial lesson that is 20 minutes for $29 to see if the program is something your child would be interested in.

Registration is open and for inquiries you can call 817-776-6459, email at hello@sparksmusicschool.com or visit the school at 2901 Glen Rose Hwy. Suit 105 in Granbury. The school is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Friday’s, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays and is closed Tuesday’s and Sunday’s.
