Beginner Strings at Central Riverside
Led by Joshua Stone
Students must be enrolled at Central Riverside Elementary School to register for this course. This course is designed for students with little or no experience playing violin, viola, cello or double-bass. Students will learn and review basic instrument care and techniques, and be introduced to more advanced techniques, including the bow, and music theory that will broaden their knowledge in music literature. CAP will provide all instruments for this course.
If your student is younger than third grade and you wish to enroll, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. CAP will provide all instruments for this course.
In-person courses will follow the DCPS schedule for holidays and school closures.
