  • How long are the classes?

    Posted by:

    Classes are an hour and a half, from 10-11:30.

    For June - I will be online during that time (10-11:30). Students can join in for as much or as little time as they wish to. We will be on Google Meet with the code "summerstrings".

    For July & August - classes will be held from 10-11:30. We recommend that students show up a little early (ten minutes or so) in order to sign in, get music, get tuned and set up before class begins. Supervision is not provided past 11:30, so please arrive on time to pick up your child.

  • Do I have to attend every week?

    Posted by:

    Nope! Different new music will be learned at each class. Summer is a great time for families to spend time together, so come when you can! 

    If you'd like to download the Summer Strings! packet for a week you miss, it will be available on the website after the class is over.

    (For JULY & AUGUST only:)
    Parents are ALWAYS welcome to stay and watch!! It's great to see first-hand what it is your child is learning. If you choose to leave while your child is in class, please be sure to be back in time to pick them up - supervision is NOT provided after class is over.
