String Ensemble

Our string ensemble gives students the opportunity to work on classical repertoire with our skilled instructors in a fun, educational and engaging environment. In order to find the most suitable placement, our instructors set up a short presentation time; Students will be asked to play a piece of their choice. Depending on demand, the string ensemble is broken into trios and quartets based on age and skill level.
