    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. While this is an extremely rewarding program, it also requires a lot of at home practice and dedication.  This class offers a chance to excel in many different genres of music as well as music theory, history and technique.


    The 4th/5th Grade Chamber Strings class meets once a week during school hours. This program promotes diligence, self-discipline, teamwork, time management, group problem solving, leadership, organization and so much more! Allowing these students to have fun with music and work hard, they grow by leaps and bounds in becoming well-rounded individuals.
