Note: Due to the uncertainty of these times, there are many things we don't yet know about this coming year. Among them are how large (or small) our different groups may be, whether we will be able to perform concerts, etc. This year may develop out of necessity into more of a "strings lab" rather than "orchestra." All times listed are subject to future adjustment, to potentially allow for safe entry/exit, cleaning between classes, and other safety considerations.
Preparatory strings is a smaller, limited-size class for students who already play violin, viola, cello or bass, but aren’t quite ready for Intermediate Strings. This class will work especially on music reading, playing in more keys, and understanding rhythms, as well as reinforcing basic technique. Preparatory Strings meets from 11:30 -- 12:30 on Mondays.
Intermediate Strings is a string orchestra which plays easy to medium-level string orchestra music of many styles. Intermediate Strings meets from 12:45 -- 1:45 on Mondays.
Advanced Strings is a string chamber orchestra which plays moderately difficult student orchestra repertoire. Advanced Strings meets from 2:00 -- 3:00 on Mondays.
