The Beginning Strings Program
Our after-school program for students in 4th grade who have no previous playing experience on an orchestral string instrument. Students will select and learn to play either the violin, viola, or cello after school in a group format three days per week.
The Elementary Orchestra Program
Our after-school program for students in 5th grade who have played in Beginning Strings for one year or have previous playing experience on violin, viola, or cello. Students meet at the same time as the Beginning Strings classes. When students move up to orchestra in middle and high school, the orchestra class will occur during the school day.
*Yes, 4th grade students with one year of experience/lessons can join the Elementary Orchestra. 5th grade students with no prior experience are also able to join the Beginning Strings classes!
