Directed by Jane Watson, this group is for homeschooled children in 3rd grade or up who either play a stringed instrument or wish to learn how to play. Our classes are divided into skill levels. Students are screened and assigned to the appropriate level class.
Instruments offered: Violin, Viola, Cello
The method Book we use is Essential Elements for Strings for the beginning and intermediate groups. The advanced group plays music from classical and contemprary composers. We select music that is interesting and age appropriate to pique the children's interest and to heighten playing skills.
If your child isn't sure of what kind of instrument s/he wants to play, we can discuss the differences between each instrument and help you find the one that suits your child.
Classes meet on Wednesday afternoons for 45 minutes to an hour as follows:
Beginners at 12pm
Intermediate at 1pm
Advanced Strings at 2pm (By audition only)
Chamber Ensemble at 3pm (By audition only)
We also offer rental instruments that grow with your child. Ask about our string rental program. Click HERE for more information on string rentals
