String Academy 1

Make friends, make memories, make MUSIC!
For 4th and 5th graders, and this year, we are accepting 3rd graders on a limited basis! Classes take place on site after school at Adams, Edgewood, Gilham, Howard, McCornack, River Road, Willagillespie, and Yujin Gakuen elementary schools. MANY CLASSES ARE NOW FULL AND CLOSED SO PLEASE CHECK BELOW!

* 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!

Give your child the gift of learning a stringed instrument. It’s a gift that can last a lifetime! 

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