String Academy 1

Information about 2020-21 String Academy will be available at the end of August. We are working with the schools to ensure the safety of the students. No matter what the fall brings, we plan to continue to bring strings instruction – and instruments – to your children so they can learn to play!

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!
