String Academy 1

MAKE friends, MAKE memories, and MAKE MUSIC in ESYO’s String Academy 1 classes!

In String Academy class, your child will…
 – Become proficient in one of four string instruments: violin, viola, cello, or bass
– Learn to read notes and play full songs.
– Get familiar with proper technique and posture.
– Perform in two concerts in front of a live audience!
– Make new friends and meet students from many different schools.

Why does this matter?
 – Children with music instruction score higher in spatial and arithmetic skills.
– Students who participate in orchestra have the lowest levels of use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs amongst any group in our society.
– Nine out of ten adults and youth who play instruments agree that music making brings the family closer together.

No Instrument? No Problem! ESYO rents quality instruments from our own inventory for a very modest rental fee. Just fill out the instrument rental form in your registration packet, and turn it in along with the rest of the forms.

Congratulations to the String Academy graduates of 2017!

Their final concert of the season was a huge success! Everyone did a great job of showing how much they have learned in just one year! Thank you to the families, the teachers, and the schools for all they do to keep this wonderful program going for the future symphony players of Eugene and Springfield!
