Virtuosi-May-2018.jpg String Academy Virtuosi SHOWCASE CONCERT

The String Academy is open to children ages 5 -18 who wish to study the violin and cello through a curriculum that includes private and group lessons, theory and master classes, chamber music, and performance opportunities. Instruction is based upon the methods and philosophies of Mimi Zweig, Suzuki, and Paul Rolland. Beginning students participate weekly in both a private and group lesson. Parents are urged to support and encourage the students at private and group lessons and in daily practice.

The special training, experience and expertise of the outstanding faculty in the musical education of young people results in students playing with technical ease and musical sensitivity. The first years of music instruction are the most important, for they set the stage for everything that follows. Whether a child develops into a professional musician or an amateur, the skills of concentration and the joy and love for music will remain forever.

Please download the String Academy Handbook [PDF] for guidelines and detailed information about the String Academy. Adobe Acrobat is free and can be downloaded here.
