The String Project is a program of group instruction on the violin, viola, cello and bass. Classes are taught by Lawrence University Conservatory of Music string majors under the supervision of lead teacher Carrie Gray, a certified, experienced strings instructor. Students attend two 45-minute sessions per week.
Students are divided into three levels:
Dolce- Beginning string students in grades 3 and 4 may participate in this entry-level orchestra.
Allegro- This is an orchestra for those in their second or third year of study on their stringed instrument. Students are Dolce graduates who wish to continue playing in an orchestra or students new to String Project who wish to experience ensemble playing for the first time
Presto- Students who successfully passed the Allegro curriculum may join Presto. Placement will be determined by the teachers. Presto members are typically in middle school or older.
