At the Senior School level, the breadth of course offerings is considerable. For information on the different departments and the courses, make a selection from the list below. For a complete guide to course requirements and detailed descriptions, see the Course Selection Guide, also below.

Strings students play a range of music, from classical to contemporary. Musicians form a complete classical string ensemble within their grade and combine to create the school orchestra (violin, viola, cello and bass).

Our strings program prepares students for performance-oriented ensembles and allows them to:

  • understand and appreciate the value of team work;
  • develop individual skills on their instrument of choice; and
  • study professional repertoire.

To enter the strings program, students need to have some previous training and new students joining SMUS enter the strings program at the discretion of the musical director.
