String Academy 1

Make Friends, Make Memories, Make MUSIC!

Have you been to our YouTube Channel? There are many educational and fun videos to watch. Here is a PLAYLIST for String Academy 1, check it out!

Beginning strings classes will take place either in person or over Zoom this fall for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders, starting in October. You can choose before or after school, Mon/Wed or Tues/Thurs. Classes are 45 minutes long. We provide the instruments at a very low rental fee. The cost is $310 for the school year and $90 for instrument rental. We offer income-based scholarships for both, based on federal guidelines. For students attending Chavez, Howard, McCornack, or River Rd, we have a lower fee schedule because of our partnership with 4J’s BEST enrichment program.

PLEASE NOTE: Our longstanding partnership with the 4J school district makes this program possible. Since we have limited capacity, registrations are currently open to 3rd, 4th and 5th graders attending a 4J school. We hope to be able to invite students from other schools and districts. Registration will begin in September, and classes in early October. Watch for more information in late August. Need-based scholarships available!
