Youth Community Strings is an after school program for children who love music! Designed for young elementary students with no previous musical experience, children will be guided from the beginning of their musical journey. Through intensive music education, students will develop life skills that will help them grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Our program promotes civic engagement and social change through music making. Participants will receive a robust music education, learn to play an instrument, and find a sense of belonging through playing music. There is no cost to participate and all instruments and supplies will be provided!
Students will learn to play the violin and at the same time, acquire these traits and more:
A Head Start In Musical Education & Appreciation
Our second graders will be given a head start in their music education by beginning at a young age. They are being introduced to the violin at a prime developmental time. As they grow into proficient musicians, they will have opportunities to hold leadership roles in their school orchestras and the skills required to participate in high level ensembles. The confidence and growth students experience in their music-making will transfer into all areas of life.
Community Building & Participation
Community! Families can expect to find a new sense of belonging within our program. Making music together naturally lends itself to community building. We will also come together for events and outings that support our musicians as well as their families. Students will have the opportunity to give back to the community through a variety of performance opportunities.
