Make Friends, Make Memories, Make MUSIC!

Give your child the gift of learning a stringed instrument. It’s a gift that can last a lifetime! For 3rd, 4th and 5th graders! Classes take place on-site before or after school at elementary schools throughout the area. Current plans are to teach at Adams, Edgewood, Gilham, Howard, McCornack, River Road, Willagillespie, and Yujin Gakuen elementary schools. 

* Highly-qualified teachers
* Unlimited need-based scholarships
* We provide the instrument!

Why does this matter?
• Children with music instruction score higher in spatial and arithmetic skills.
•  Students in orchestra have the lowest levels of use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs among any group in our society.
• Music-making brings the family closer together!

Has your child already had a year of strings? Then you’re ready for String Academy 2!
