MIDDLE SCHOOL STRINGS CLASSES
Quartet: Audition Only

The middle school strings classes meet every day as an elective during school hours. The purpose of the Middle School Strings Class is to instill in each musician a sense of self-directed learning, commitment passion for music. This is all done with the goal of preparing these students to use their musical talents to glorify God.
