For students with little or no previous experience in music, this beginning ensemble introduces students to a stringed instrument (violin, viola, cello, or bass). Each week, we’ll spend time together as a full ensemble as well as in instrument-specific sectionals.
Please note: A placement interview is required. Interviews with the instructor will be held on September 5th and September 12th to assist students in choosing and sizing an instrument. To schedule an interview, please complete the Interview Sign-Up Form:
