Strings Classes are group violin and cello lessons taught by professional musicians from the Mobile Symphony. Third-eighth grade students participate in a variety of in-school and after-school programs.
Strings Class instructors are all accomplished professional musicians with the Mobile Symphony who encourage students to reach their full potential. The instructors provide students with basic music theory training in addition to instrumental technique. Students also receive opportunities throughout the year to perform as a group for small audiences at their schools and in their community.
All students need to be sized for their instrument by either a strings class instructor or salesperson at the music store. Please avoid instruments that have been painted different colors as they are very difficult to maintain and keep in tune.
String instruments can be purchased or rented from several local music stores. Click store for a cost estimate.
