Strings (Middle School Arts)

At the Middle School level, strings class gives students experience playing in ensembles as they gain competence on their instruments and become more musically aware as strings players. Our focus is on string instrument-playing concepts and technical skills; tone production and intonation; music reading; and appreciating through listening.

Although strings classes for each grade rehearse separately, there is a cross-grade Middle School Strings Ensemble that brings together a group of musicians from Grades 6 through 8 for two periods of rehearsal in each 10-day timetable cycle.
