String Academy

About the Camp

The String Academy is a program geared toward the beginning string player.* Both private and group lessons are available for string students between the ages of 6 and 18. Students receive twelve (12) private lessons and four (4) group lessons each semester.

In addition to learning how to play a string instrument, students will discover and learn note-reading skills and rhythms through a variety of games. Group lessons will be organized by age and ability.

It is integral to the student’s success that a parent attend each lesson.

**Students with prior violin experience should contact Benjamin Whitcomb, the Director and Coordinator (see right for contact information).
