Our Apollo program is for beginning students who have not had stringed instrument experience. Some of the students have had basic musical training, some have not. Students coming into our program have usually finished the third grade, but we do have older students as well.Younger students may also be admitted at the discretion of our conductor and/or director.
During the year, the students learn the beginning fundamentals of the instrument they choose (violin, viola, or cello). They also develop the skill of playing together as a group, and will be using a beginning string course book. Students are loaned an instrument for the school year, with the only cost being a $50 maintenance fee.
