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

**2018-19 String Academy Classes will begin the week of Oct 1st.**
We will post the times and registration brochures as soon as they have been determined. Thanks for your patience!

Congratulations to the 2017-18 String Academy students on their final concert at Kelly Middle School! GREAT JOB everyone!! CLICK HERE for more photos!

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.
