Beginning Strings at Enterprise Learning Academy
Led by Joshua Stone
Students must be enrolled at Enterprise Learning Academy to register for this course. This course is designed for students with little to no knowledge of or experience with violin, viola, cello or double-bass instruments. Students will learn basic instrument care and maintenance, as well as how to hold the instrument. Once students can play by plucking the strings, they will be introduced to the bow.
In-person courses will follow the DCPS schedule for holidays and school closures.
