The String Academy is open to students between the ages of 5 – 18 who wish to study the violin, viola 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, Shinichi Suzuki, and Paul Rolland. Parents are an important part of the early years of study; they attend all lessons and support the 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. String Academy students who have taken the path of becoming musicians are now performing and teaching throughout the world. All students attain skills of concentration, develop a sense of high self-esteem, and keep with them a joy and love for music that remains forever.
