Beginning Strings

For Beginning String Orchestra Students, Grades 4 – 6


Beginning students receive instruction in violin, viola, or cello.  Little to no experience is required.  Students will start the year with a weekly 20-minute private lesson.  In 2021, they will move into a half-hour class with a maximum of three students.
