String Project Classes

CLASSES

Explorer I

Our beginning classes, will meet twice a week in-person on Mondays and Wednesdays between 4:30 - 5:10 pm.  Enrollment capacity is 20 violins, 5 violas, and 20 cellos. A full year, two semester, commitment is required. Students will be taught the basics of string playing and improvisation. Music reading is not a prerequisite. Instruments will not be used until the third week of class to allow time to measure each child and recommend the correct size instrument that is needed. Unless a student qualifies for a Clarke County scholarship, you must provide your own instrument. (How to choose an instrument.)

Tuition: $100/semester plus $5 registration fee.
