Students who wish to take part in the strings program can begin their training as early as K5 and can continue through the high school level. Lessons are available for violin and viola, and orchestra is available for violin, viola, cello, and bass. Private instruction is available for all ages, and small group instruction is available for K5 and 1st grade beginners. Students in 2nd grade through high school have opportunity to play in one of four orchestras which focus on advancing musicianship, technique, and repertoire. Beginning students are part of Beginner Orchestra; they continue through elementary into Book 2 Orchestra and then into Book 3+ Orchestra. At the junior and senior high levels, our String Ensemble provides more opportunities for musical growth.
